Dark Floral II Black Desaturated on Lightweight Velvet Fabric (140 x 173 cm)
Our lightweight velvet is simultaneously soft and durable and is ideal for making cushions and curtains. This fabric is printed using a sublimation dye technique. This means that that the colors are impregnated into the fabric, so that they won’t fade or wear with time or exposure to sunlight.
With a Martindale rating of +/- > 60,000 and a pilling, rub fastness (dry and wet), and lightfastness rating of +/- 4-5, this fabric meets the standard for contract upholstery fabric. It can therefore be used for commercial projects as well as private homes.
The prints are sharp and vibrant on this incredibly soft yet durable fabric. It’s truly the perfect material for making cushions and curtains to bring warmth in your interior.

What characterizes this print are the large-scale flowers (the large dahlia is 47 cm (18.5”), the lush, serpentine foliage and the presence of a reclusive butterfly and a lone beetle in the shadows. All of this is painted with incredible attention to detail, in a realistic style reminiscent of the Old Masters. At the same time, the scale and proportions have been imagined and manipulated for dramatic effect. The gestures of unfolding, bending and reaching give the print a sense of movement.
