What is Velvet?

Velvet is a fabric that can be made synthetically or from natural fibers depending on your budget and what you prefer. Many designers and clothing brands have been using velvet in their clothes for the past decade and even long before this. The fabric is woven tufted pieces that are typically made on a loom. The material feels super soft to touch and for this reason is a popular choice with many different prom queens for their prom dress.

What is Satin?

Satin is another fabric that is totally different to velvet, from the way it feels to the way it looks – the two couldn’t be any more different. This fabric has a glossy finish as it is made using plain weaves and yarn. If you are to touch satin, it feels very silky and smooth but not in the same way as velvet. It is an acquired fabric for clothing as it doesn’t iron so you have to keep any clothing pieces in pristine.
