This velour, also called nicky velour, is made from a knitted fabric of plated loops. In a later stage these loops are cut and sheared which gives the fabric a smooth and very soft, velvet-like surface. Velour is mostly used for leisure wear (sweaters), children’s wear and toys.
VELOUR FROM ECOLOGICAL TEXTILES
The ultrasoft and velvet-like velour fabrics from ECOLOGICAL TEXTILES are all made from 100% Aegean organic cotton, meaning that no synthetic fibres have been added. The velour fabrics are often compared to velvet, and it's true that these fabrics are very similar although velour is much less expensive. The fabrics have a weight of 280 gr/m2, which make them suitable for clothing as well as upholstery. When used for clothing this super soft fabric is very comfortable - it could be used in e.g. casual wear, sweaters, lounge wear and also for baby clothing or toys.
Velour is stretchy, very soft, warm and comfy and has a luxurious look because the view side of the fabric has a nice lustre.
Of course the velour fabrics from ECOLOGICAL TEXTILES are all GOTS certified.
