Silk velvet for bag covers

Postby Julia Say » Wed May 23, 2012 12:35 pm

There's a firm in Durham UK currently listing pure silk velvet (an unusual and expensive material these days ) on Ebay.

I've been sent a small sample (since what is listed is sometimes a mite optimistic in the description dept), and I believe it is actually correct.

There are loads of colours (look at the seller's other items for details) and the average price is 25.00 per metre - enough for two covers at least.

I can't remember when cotton velvet was invented, but I think the silk stuff would be authentic for historic pipes.
