Velvet is a type of woven tufted fabric in which the cut threads are evenly distributed, with a short, dense pile, giving it a distinctive soft feel. We recommend protecting velvet shoes with a water and stain guard. Please test the stain guard on a small section of your shoes before you treat the whole pair. Velvet should be kept away from rain and moisture as best you can. If a shoe gets wet, soak up the moisture as soon as possible with a clean towel and allow it to air dry. Everyday wear and excessive abrasions can remove the velvet in areas, so please wear carefully.

To clean, spot clean the affected area with a mild detergent and water mixture. Do this on the stain first, then the whole shoe and repeat on the other shoe to ensure both look the same after air drying. Velvet should also be kept out of direct sunlight for long periods of time, as it is especially prone to fade. We recommend cleaning periodically or as needed to keep your FRĒDAs looking brand new.
