What is Damask Anyway?

If you are wondering what Damask is anyway, here is a short refresher:
DAMASK dates as far back as the middle ages, originating in Damascus.  A Damask is a distinct type of ornamental fabric originally woven from bright colored silks sometimes with the addition of gold or other fine metallic threads as well.  The traditional Damask fabric had an intricate reversible design created exclusively in the weaving process that usually consisted of flowers, animals, fruits or some other type of ornamental pattern. Damask was originally known as the opulent, luxurious fabric of royalty and the very wealthy but when the Jacquard Loom was invented at the end of the 19th Century Damask began to be mass produced and it's use became widespread.

Damask Designs of Today

Today Damask can be seen anywhere from tablecloths and wallpaper to wedding dresses and invitations.  It's glamorous rich history has followed this fabric and its designs into the 21st century where it has been recreated in many forms including wallpapers, fabrics, table linens, bath towels and home paper products. Damask is coming back in full force will be a great way to update and add some elegance and glamor to your home decor.
