Deluxe Green Washable Velvet Bridge Cloth Second Quality
Made from a heavier weight and deeper pile velvet than our regular washable velvet bridge cloths, choose the Deluxe Green Washable Velvet Bridge Cloth if you’re looking for a more durable and luxurious cloth, that still has the benefit of being washable. Made with love and care in our Devizes workshop from a crease- and fade-resistant heavy duty upholstery and soft-furnishings fabric, this cloth is designed for frequent repeated use. Expertly made using British velvet, 88% cotton and 12% polyester, it’s beautifully made by us to our usual high standards. Our washable velvets are the largest cloths we produce at approximately 120cm square so this cloth is suitable for use on a variety of sizes of card table. Compared to washable velvet cloths from other suppliers, our Deluxe cloth is unquestionably superior on many counts including quality, value and appearance.
The second quality cloths have one or more of the following quality issues:
- Smaller size (minimum size of 38 inches / 97cm)
- Mark on the fabric (a small, dark mark, less than 1cm in diameter)
- Lines or marks on the back of the cloth (not visible on the front)
Characteristics of Velvet
Made from a deep-pile crease-resistant velvet, the beauty of this fabric is how it reflects and absorbs the light. If you look down the pile the light is reflected with a lovely sheen and the colour appears lighter. If you look against the pile, the light is absorbed giving a richer and deeper appearance. The deeper the pile, the greater the effect so the Deluxe Green Washable Velvet Bridge Cloth looks sumptuous compared to the regular washable velvet cloths. These visual effects are due to the pile having a direction or ‘nap’, which you can feel when you run your hand across the fabric: it feels silky smooth if you stroke down the pile, and it feels harsher if you brush against the pile. Over the course of a game, the pile will inevitably lift if someone runs their hand or arm against the nap, giving a darker appearance to that area. Simply smooth it back down with the flat of your hand to restore it back to its beautiful sheen. A pressure mark can occur on velvet if the pile is crushed or pressed flat. We advise against leaning on or placing heavy objects on velvet cloths to prevent pressure marks appearing. Full instructions on the care of your velvet cloth are included.
All our velvet cloths go through rigorous quality control before their final pressing. Each cloth is neatly and professionally folded then sealed into a protective plastic bag. The bagged cloth is then put into a mailing box ready for despatch, with most cloths made to order so they’re in peak condition. These boxes and packing methods have been developed to ensure our velvet cloths are successfully transported all over the world, arriving at their destination in perfect condition and ready for use. We offer the option of a handmade presentation box in a co-ordinating colour. Not only does the cloth look fabulous in the presentation box, it provides you with ideal storage for the velvet to help prevent pressure marks.
Buy this Cloth and Support UK Manufacturing
We’ve been making our top-quality bridge cloths for over a quarter of a century and in that time we’ve seen the UK textiles industry decline dramatically, along with nearly all other British manufacturing. We are proud to be a small British manufacturer ourselves, and we’re proud to support the remaining British textiles industry by purchasing fabrics and trimmings that are made here in the UK. By buying a bridge cloth from us, you are supporting a chain of UK manufacturing companies and their employees for which we’d like to say a big Thank You to you!
