The trendy colors of graphite, raven wing, licorice and hardened tar are respectably elegant and would suit the interiors of club spaces and living rooms. Light colors bring no less fascination. These are rich milky shades and creme brulee, pale straw and ecru (ivory), lime honey and walnut pulp.
Due to the high density of threads (50,000 units on the Martindale scale), the velvets of the DELAUNAY textile collection are wear-resistant and would keep their original appearance and quality even in conditions of increased use of premises (hotels, theater foyers, cinemas, conference halls). Velvets provide sound insulation and dampen day and electric light. In cold climates, they also keep the apartment warmer, save from drafts, and hold aromas. Velvet is hypoallergenic, it "breathes" and does not electrify, perfect in draperies.
Velvets are traditionally considered to be status textiles. Many centuries ago, velvet was used to sew clothes only for emperors and kings. Then the circle of consumers expanded, but velvet products always cost a lot of money. Raw materials were imported from China, and the first Guild of Weavers appeared in Venice in the middle of the 13th century. Today, this wonderful fabric is produced in factories in China, India, Italy, Spain and France.
