What Houzz contributors are saying:
ViscoseViscose looks luxurious and has a silk-like lustre, yet it is affordable. That’s because viscose is a man-made fibre, created from cellulose that is chemically extracted from trees. Pros: It is an affordable, elastic fabric and is available in varied colours and styles. It is also a ‘breathing’ fabric like cotton and great for hot and humid climates.Cons: Viscose wrinkles easily and has low resistance to abrasions. Low-quality viscose is susceptible to water and moisture damage, which make the colours of the fabric bleed.
Cotton velvetCotton velvet crushes easily, which is why it’s often blended with another fibre, such as polyester, to improve its resilience. It has a matte finish, but it can be blended with viscose to add lustre (and strength).
