Behind the Design

As always, here are some insights from the designer:

“Attractive! Alluring! Beauty! Desire! Glamour is an impression that we wanted you to have by looking at this theme. Velvet Sky has become an e-commerce theme that provides an atmosphere full of charm. We did a lot of customization; the featured product on homepage, the category product page, the product details. Velvet Sky is our humble attempt to provide a feeling of comfort in shopping experience. We worked hard to make sure that customers can found the items needed without being confused. Support your customers well, and start out by building a personal relation between you and your customers. We hope that you’ll find the theme useful for your projects.”

Thank you, Arrie. We appreciate your work and your good intentions.
