Velvet is a type of fabric that is woven with its threads distributed evenly. This gives a certain feel to the surface. It is also a heavy durable fabric with a strong sheen. The reason why velvet is associated with nobility is because of its high cost in producing one. It is demanded for its unusual appearance for it is shiny yet not too bright to the eyes and its softness on the skin.
Velvet nowadays are made with polyester, nylon, and other materials to make production cheaper but ideally it was made from silk to which only royalty and the rich can afford in the past since velvet was popular.
Textures define the sense of touch you feel when you see a certain surface or substance. It is common to find textures online and in graphic designs. There are two kinds of textures. The first is tactile, or physical texture, which refers to the direct feel of a surface. The second is visual texture, which refers to the impressions the observer feels when looking at an image. It gives an illusion of having its own physical texture. The elements of visual textures include color, orientation, and intensity.
Textures are used in visual art and designs. Examples of these are pictures, backgrounds, websites, etc. They project a sense of visual touch, which is as if you can actually feel the surface. This is achieved by realistic characteristics of the texture.

When going on a website, for example, the viewer would get irritated if the texture of the background does not match the rest of the details.
