  • 5 Ways To Decorate With Velvet

    November 9, 2016 by Britex Fabrics

    According to The Edit on Bloglovin', velvet is one of the hottest trends for fall. Their blog post includes images to spark ideas for incorporating velvet for your own home decor. Curtains and upholstery are two of the many ways in which you can use velvet to decorate. Come to or contact the second floor of our brick-and-mortar store, where we have many different colors of velvet. If you can't make it to our brick-and-mortar store, no need to worry. Check out our Customized Swatch Service here. Each Customized Swatch Shopper Service is good towards two projects. Important: After you purchase you'll be emailed a request form. Please send information about both projects when you fill out your form. We can't save your second project request for later use. We happily ship to most countries.

    Britex Fabrics loves everything about silk and it shows. Silk is a natural fiber that is usually derived from the mulberry silkworm’s cocoons.

We delight in traipsing about to find you the most chic Italian silks, natty necktie silks, brilliant jacquard silks, and airy sheer silk chiffons.

    This sale is good for online silk fabric category purchases* only 11/1 - 11/14. *This online sale does not apply to in-store, email, phone, or Customized Swatch purchases.
