This standard velvet brush, preferred by thousands of professionals, is used to finish and fluff fine velvets.
After velvet has been cleaned it should be brushed lightly in the same direction to restore it to its original luster. A fine wire standard velvet brush should be used with non-corrosive metal bristles. By holding the brush on an angle the brush will glide easily over the velvet.
The wire for this brush is attached without the use of tuft holes so that there is even spacing between each wire. This eliminates any streaking. This is the traditional style velvet groomer and has been used for many years. It features brass wire stapled into a maple wood block and handle. The handle allows for off to the side brushing action. This brass velvet brush can also be used for pet hair removal.
Avoid dampening or soaking the fabric as this may cause shrinking or water staining. Instead, lightly spray the area with the diluted cleaning solution and gently wipe off in the direction of the nap, with a dry absorbent colorfast cloth. Gently (very gently!) brush in the direction of the nap with the metal bristle side, using only the tips of the bristles and being very careful not to poke them through the fabric.
