Velvet Stripe is an upholstery textile that introduces a
sophisticated, low-pile cotton velvet construction to
Paul Smith’s ongoing exploration of stripes for Maharam. Constructed in mercerised cotton velvet, it features a refined, midscale pattern of coloured stripes that runs parallel to the selvedge.
A playful twist on a classic design, Velvet Stripe has a vibrant yet subtle expression of colour. The stripes repeat at varying intervals, emphasising a rhythmic play of density, colour saturation and proportion.
The textile’s fine, densely woven yarns deliver rich colours that are complimented by the sophisticated lustre of the mercerised cotton. In keeping with Paul Smith’s trademark of unexpected palettes, Velvet Stripe mixes apparel associated neutral tones with bright nuances.
