Since when did GMs use Cotton Velour?

Is this a new development or has it always been that way? I *thought* they were Bamboo/Hemp - but obviously - I'm wrong.

When did this change? Or did it?

That is a new thing with this round of prints. The old prints are a OBV inside.

Maybe to make them more affordable since cotton velour is way cheaper to buy than OBV?

I"m not too sure about the pricing of the fabric, but I think because it's CV vs BV, we'll see a big difference when the dipes are being washes over and over again. KWIM? I find that CV doesn't crunch up as fast as the BV.
