Devore, aka Burnout, is a fabric technique that is particularly used on velvets and jerseys where a mixed-fiber material undergoes a chemical process to dissolve the cellulose fibers and create a semi-transparent pattern against a solidly woven background. Lazercut as it implies; refers to a material that has been intricately cut using a laser to produce a fabric that has no unintentional marks left on it since no pressure is applied to the material. A variety of fabrics can be laser cut including silk, nylon, neoprene, polyester and cotton.
