[gdlr_image_link type="image" image_url="" link_url="" alt="" target="_blank"]Italy. Velvet curtains frame the stage, and are the shawl of royalty. The touch that is inviting and the play of light on the complicated piles and loops of threads add to its sensuality and esteem. The word 'velvet' itself is rich, as the fabric. Historians believe velvet weaving began in Baghdad, as in ancient Mesopotamia, before moving
