Live from Proposte: Prosetex

Friday, 10 May 2013

Italian brand Prosetex debuted its new fabric developments at Proposte this week, including a series of deep teal and indigo blue velvets.

The velvet is spray dyed with up to five different colours creating subtle layers of contrasting shades, giving a rich depth of colour to the fabric.

A display of hot orange and red velvets demonstrate an alternative technique. A floral and dot design is transfer printed onto viscose and polyester jacquard velvet, leaving the transferred design on only the viscose base and not on the fabric pile. These contrasting motifs form a rich, dual pattern effect.
