The weight and thickness of a quality silk velvet makes for a luxurious textile indeed. While I have long admired Koplavitch & Zimmer's (a high end, to the trade textile house) "Panthera" pattern, its $400 a yard price had kept me away. I have been particularly drawn to the "Navy" color way, since I am after all, a lover of blue. You can buy this fabric for around $100 a yard here, which is awesome, but a few months ago, while poking around on Ebay, I found this fabric.

I needed a yard of it to make two pillows that would give a little edge to my very traditional 1920's library. I paid my nearly $30 (hello STEAL!), and friends, I was amazed when I pulled it out of the bag.
