At British Velvets we stock support a wide range of velvets to cover every home and contract furnishing need, to service our network of wholesaler and manufacturing customers, around the world.
All our velvets are woven on specialised Dobby velvet looms.
We use mostly cotton, both open end and ring spun, carded and combed, but also Bamboo, Linen, Lyocell, Modal, Polyester and Trevira CS®.
We can weave velvets which are 12Ocm, 14Ocm or 150cm wide.
From 330 g/m2 to 620 g/m2.
Most of our velvets destined for use in the home have a crease resistant finish, most of our velvets destined for contract end use have a flame retardant finish, which varies to meet the specific requirements for that application and country. We also sell velvet which has been prepared for printing.
Our service to our customers is our top priority. We aim to build long term relationships where we know and deliver to each customers’ exact requirements. When needed we can develop special constructions and often produce custom colours, subject to reasonable minimum quantities, to satisfy a customer specification. We have a highly experienced Sales team both in administration and field based, who are friendly and able to deal with all customer queries.
Although British Velvets only sell to the trade, members of the public are welcome to contact our office, and we will direct them to a contact who will be able to help them with their velvet requirements.
