British velvets ltd

The client
Locally based to Creativeworld and uniquely the only UK weaver of velvets, British Velvets was founded in East Lancashire in 1932 and is currently based in Burnley, where the weaving process takes place for supplying the soft furnishings, upholstery and contract markets. With over 80 years’ experience of velvet manufacturing, the company prides itself on upholding the premium quality production standards established at inception, whilst focusing on environmentally friendly manufacturing and continually striving to improve this.

The brief
As a longstanding Creativeworld client, British Velvets is assured we understand their business and naturally commissioned us to develop their new corporate website design. The aim was to bring their business website up to date with the current digital landscape, ensuring suitability for all devices and enhanced user experience. They needed to portray a fresh, professional image and showcase the organisation’s rich history, heritage and extensive product ranges with a more visual focus.

Our solution
We developed a bespoke business website design which maintained British Velvets’ traditional, recognisable branding and reflected their impressive history, experience and business rarity.

Firstly, we ensured to utilise the red and blue colours of the UK flag in their logo throughout the company website to create an elegant and professional aesthetic, which represented the epitome of the company’s British heritage.

Visuals were a key requirement, so we facilitated photography shoots to capture British Velvets’ manufacturing site, people, fabric product ranges and colours to bring the company to life for website visitors and illustrate British Velvets’ capabilities to their target markets.

With a staggering 750 options across the company’s full product range, we placed a key focus on developing a detailed product feature to showcase this, including a colour reference chart for each type of velvet to enhance online customer experience.

We provide all clients with guidance following completion of their site, enabling them to manage and update content on their new site easily and independently.
