Velvet, namely Zhang velvet. Named because it originated in Zhangzhou, Fujian Province, China. Mass production in the Ming Dynasty is one of the traditional Chinese fabrics. Velvet has always been a traditional fashion fabric for autumn clothing. Its luxurious temperament and rich texture create a magical fashion atmosphere. The velvet fabrics are all made of high-quality pure cotton threads. The most important ones are monochrome, garment printing, jacquard and cramping, yarn-dyed fabrics and burnt-out products. There are all piles on the surface of the pile, and the pile cuts some piles into piles according to each pattern, forming a pattern between the piles and piles. The velvet fluff or loops fit tightly, the color is elegant, and it is strong and durable. They can be used to make clothes, hats and decorations.

Velvet was more powerful in the Ming and Qing dynasties. There are two types of flower velvet and plain velvet. Flower velvet refers to cutting a part of the pile loop into pile according to the pattern, so that it is combined with the unbroken electromagnetic coil to form a pattern; while the surface layer of plain velvet is all pile loops. Velvet generally uses silk as raw material or warp, cotton yarn as weft, and mulberry silk (or rayon) as pile loop. When weaving, a pile rod (ie, thin iron wire) is woven into every three wool yarns. When the length of weaving is necessary, the machine is cut along the thin iron wire with a cutter to form pile. How the plush is made depends on the pattern. There are two ways to make up textile patterns: one is velvet satin, or Zhang satin; the other is velvet satin, or velvet. It is characterized by less weaving, monochromatic and two-color, or inlaid with gold and silver threads.
