Our replica is a burnout velvet, a velvet with a short pile creating a pattern on a light woven background. The background is slightly transparent, therefore we recommend to use an interlining underneath, for example a silk habotai. The gray thread in the fabric is silk, the dark blue is rayon. The velvet has a wonderful light blue shades when draped or looked at from the side.
