Cordani Velluti is the only producer of smooth Genoese
velvet (“velluto liscio genovese”) which since the
1500s is the most compact and shiny velvet in the
world. Cordani Velluti fabrics are made of pure silk.
They can be “cesellati “ (chiseled) or “carré” (squared)
on a background of satin or “gros de tours”, or
else “a giardino” (like a garden) with many colors. All
can be enriched with designs done in thread of gold
or silver, or with special tints. All Cordani velvets are
made entirely by hand on historic looms that date to
the 1800s. They can be used in many ways - from
interior design to clothing to fashion accessories.
