Robust cotton viscose velvet with a subtle crushed effect and a soft sheen with supple drape.
The crushed velvet effect gives Sophia a more interesting shade and texture that does not “bruise” easily. Some marking or pile distortion is inevitable during the handling process, using a soft brush may help but in most cases just regular use and weight of the hung curtain itself will make these disappear.
Contrast lining on an inside leading edge border can add interest to curtains in a cost effective way.

Sofia Velvet is a beautifully soft, yet robust cotton viscose velvet with a subtle crushed effect and a soft sheen.
Sophia Velvet is perfect for velvet curtains as it drapes so well unlike many heavyweight velvets which are more suited to upholstery than velvet curtains. With the Sophia Velvets fabric range, the crushed velvet effect gives a different, more interesting shade and texture, similar to silk.
As velvet, this fabric is robust and does not ‘bruise’ easily. This is a fabric that is custom made for velvet curtains. That said, it is also ideal for upholstery given its robust nature.
