Devore is a process that has been used in the fashion industry for many years. Originally it was known as "poor man's lace" and was called "broderie chimique" in Europe because it was used to simulate magazine embroidery. The main use of devore has been on cut velvet fabric with a pile of viscose or rayon on a silk warp/backing.
