The finishing of a velvet goes through multiple stages. 

 

The degumming is an essential step that allows the elimination of sericin . (natural glue that wraps around the silk yarn) from silk fabrics and yarns The fabric soaks in hot soapy water for a few hours. 

In upholster, the weaving of velvet is mainly done with yarns already dyed, which allows a greater fastness.

 

 

For clothing, with requests being more specific, the weaving of the velvet is done with greige  yarns and then the fabric is dyed. Our team of dyers creates multiple compositions to obtain the most beautiful and powerful colours. 

The dyeing of plain velvet is done in a turnstile boat. The velvet layers are then put in contact with the dye in a heated tank for long hours.

The dyeing of Jacquard velvet is done on boats in the open air. The velvet is fixed around a rotating cylinder that will soak the piece in a colouring bath.

The essential step is for the dyers to play with the temperatures and compositions of the dyeing bath so that the dyeing is applied only to silk or viscose.

Beyond 3 colours on our shaped fabrics, a manual application is required. On the same shaped part, the number of different colours is unlimited.

Hand painting is a rare technique resulting from an ancestral know-how that requires extreme patience and precision. This long and meticulous work allows to obtain prestigious and unique pieces with one-of-a-kind look and feel.

The finish is composed of different technical operations that will give the fabric its characteristics and final appearance.

We can modify the properties of the velvet fibers to make them waterproof, wrinkle-free, antistatic or fireproof. It is also possible to modify the surface of the textile. Velvet pile can be brushed straight or laid down the piles -panné- to give a mirror effect, also effects such as astrakan velvet.

At each production release, our velvets are checked by our laboratory team to meet specific standards and needs.
