Why is the company called I Love Velvet?

One of our founders has a cousin that works at a very prestigious jeweler who polled the top 10% highest spending customers. They were asked to describe their shopping experience at the jewelers in one word. And the one word everyone had in common was the word “Velvet”…

Apparently the VIP room in the jewelers showroom had a large velvet chair where all the VIP customers would sit…

When the customers were asked “Why velvet” they all simply answered “I Love Velvet”…
