Solid Black Libretto Microfiber Velvet Pillow Cover
Sewn in a solid jet black velvet fabric with a soft plush matte texture, this pillow cover will breathe new life into your decor! This ultra soft lightweight polyester velvet has an elegant drape and a rating of over 50,000 double rubs on the abrasion scale.
Microfiber velvet is different from traditional velvet in that it does not have the deep pile typically associated with velvet. Microfiber velvet boasts a soft silky hand with a directional nap (meaning the fabric appears lighter or darker when you brush across its surface). However, it is not woven like traditional velvets and does not have fibers standing perpendicular to the surface that make a fuzzy pile weave.
Our Libretto microfiber velvet is the functional equivalent of Robert Allen's Touche velvet, Duralee's DV15862 velvet and Kravet's Broadmoor velvet.
The Libretto pillow covers can be made for you in more colors.

► Don't see your size listed above? Request a custom size.
► The posted measurements are taken at the interior midpoints with the cover inside out.
► All covers are slightly contoured in shape and made with tapered corners for a professional appearance (no droopy corners!). For this reason, stated cover measurements are taken across the middle (not from corner to corner).
► Finished cover sizes are made smaller to best fit based on the insert size and fabric weight. For further explanation, please see this FAQ. The standard size chart is developed from actual testing on both feather and polyfil inserts commercially made and available on the market. The sizing is designed for your insert to fill out the cover completely for a full, plump appearance after stuffing in the manner shown in our shop’s product photos and like pillows in interior design and architecture magazines. The finished pillow should have a nice, defined outline yet be comfortable to sit upon.
► Please allow for +/- 3% tolerance on measurements. Minor variances do not affect the fit. Our pillow covers are human-made and measurements may not be exact down to the millimeter.
