Commentary

"Patterns are made by leaving portions of the design free of pile called voided velvet. Combining cut and uncut pile loops produces contrasts in both color and texture. This technique, called ciselé velvet, embellishes the design since cut pile appears darker than the uncut pile. Velvet catches light in various ways, revealing subtle gradations of color. Projecting pile-required quantities of silk thread, voided velvet was less expensive to manufacture than solid-pile velvet or brocaded velvet."
