Thank you Kevin O’Brien for reinventing the over marketed, victorian, Devore velvet of the 1990’s. (We all did think it was pretty once). Devore velvet, also known as burn-out, is usually a silk-velvet where the nap is ironed for a shimmery effect. You may remember the wildly popular silk burn-out scarves that was a fashion must-have in the mid 90’s? I still have 3 or 4 and just can’t wear them anymore. Like a fortuny silk pattern, Kevin’s hand printed textiles have an intaglio feel w/a washed burn-out look that feels so vintage and fresh at the same time.
