Velvet fabric has a fine pile which may appear to have shading variations and bruising of the velvet surface. This is not a manufacturing defect but natural characteristics of velvet. To resolve this, we recommend that you gently massage with your fingers or use a dry sponge to rub the velvet surface. To speed up this process you could use a hairdryer on a low heat setting. To keep your velvet looking its best, we suggest occasionally vacuum the material to remove any surface dust.
To clean the more stubborn surface marks, we suggest mixing some dish soap (uncoloured) with some lukewarm water. We advise using a cotton towel to gently dab or wipe the marks away. Avoid heavy blotting or harsh rubbing as this will potentially damage the surface. Please immediately wipe up any spills by using a paper towel or soft cloth and please make sure the material is dried thoroughly after cleaning.
Do not position your furniture in front of radiators, fires or direct sunlight as it may cause fading or dis-colouration.
