Have you brought home something velvety yet since the fabric came back in fashion a few years ago? There’s a good chance that you have. Curtains, sofas and even lampshades and wallpaper all drift along on the soft wave of lustrous comfort that is velvet. In interiors, velvet is known to brighten any room by the way it reflects light, making it a very rewarding fabric in small and darker spaces. And look at all the choices you have!
For quite a while, velvet has proven that it’s more than a luxurious fabric solely for the rich. Among the still highly popular darker shades such as emerald green and burnt orange, we now also see a shift towards lighter colours like pastels and beiges. It allows you to take a step away from the more common interior styles in which velvet fits like a glove and experiment to match it with more neutral surroundings.
At Symphony Mills, when you say ‘fabric’ you immediately add ‘velvet’ to it. Next to our wide range of colours, our fabric collection is mainly known for its velvets. To easily guide you through these specific fabrics, we divided them in a subcategory which we like to call The Gemstones. Each named after a specific gem, our velvet fabrics have their own specifics that set them apart from one another. Knitted or woven, any kind of fibre, easy to clean… Let’s introduce you to four of them!
Diamond: your best friend for curtains and furniture
Diamonds. What better than wearing it around your finger, you ask? Cuddling up in it! Our Diamond is a woven velvet with a W-weave, which makes it usable for both drapery and upholstery. Next to the typical deep velvet colours, Diamond also has a selection of powdery blush colours and soft grays and beiges.
Jade: widest colour range and easy to clean
51 different colours. If you weren’t sure yet we were offering more than just the standard darker velvet palettes, Jade is here to prove the opposite. Characterised by its wide variety of earth tones, bright hues and subdued colours, Jade is a true chameleon.
This warp knit velvet feels like a cotton velvet and has one very specific feature: it’s cleanable. With just some lukewarm water and a clean cloth, you can easily get rid of stains from wine, pen and more. The first member of our Easy 2 Clean collection, this fabric is a dream come true for clumsy people, dog owners and (grand)parents.
Quartz: a rainbow of applications
Often referred to as the ‘rainbowest’ collection in our range. The smile-to-face-bringing Quartz is a knitted velvet with a very fine high pile and matt look. Extremely soft and available in 50 rich colours, this bestseller can be used for many different applications.

Ruby: more than just red
Again a gemstone that immediately implies a colour. We can already reveal there’s a wonderful ruby red in Ruby’s colour range, but the other vivid colours and pastels are bound to lighten up your mood and your interior just as much.
Ruby is a knit warp velvet developed with a special technology that allows you to use it for upholstering without needing a backing. This fabric is light and flexible, making it suitable for various applications.
Emerald: inspired by the Queen
You might immediately mentally add ‘green’ to this one, but emerald is so much more than just a colour. The birthstone to people born in May, emerald is believed to be a source of infinite patience in spiritual circles.
Anyhow, no matter which month you were born in, we believe a little bit of patience can always be helpful. And where better to get it than in a lustrous fabric inspired by the old monarchies? Just breathe in, breathe out and focus – can you feel the royal calmness coming your way?
