The viscose velvets are made with a yarn composed of an artificial fiber extracted from vegetable cellulose. This fiber is obtained starting from the raw material of natural origin through some chemical processes.

The viscose velvets of the Manifattura Tessile DINOLE® allow combining the technical characteristics of viscose with the elegant shine and softness similar to silk. They have an average of 27 million bows per linear meter, with a minimum hair length of about 2 mm. This makes the surface of the velvet compact and soft to the touch, but at the same time resistant and durable.

The Manifattura Tessile DINOLE® carries out numerous and sophisticated finishes on its viscose velvets to give it greater resilience, enhancing its beauty in use and making it swell the hair. Thanks to these particular treatments conceived by our internal laboratory, the standard daily use signs of this velvet tend to diminish and, if let free to “breathe”, the hair fibres regain their natural moisture upon contact with the air and rise again. However, the creation of a light and shadows texture on its surface, as the velvet is used, is a characteristic of this quality, just like precious pure silk velvets.

This effect is achieved without the use of formaldehyde, a substance classified as a human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), as all the velvets produced by the Manifattura Tessile DINOLE® are 100% formaldehyde-free.
