10 How to use damask for your dream interiors?

Damask is a reversible fabric, made from a variety of fabrics, such as silk, linen, cotton, wool and synthetic fibres. The pattern is woven into the fabric using a jacquard-loom technique, rather than print on it. The patterns of the damask can be either multi-coloured or single-coloured. Its durable and decorative nature makes it great for upholstery and window dressing. The origin of the damask dates back to 300 B.C. in China. It developed into a major weaving technique during the early Middle Ages around Byzantine and the Middle East. Damask came to Europe for the first time in the 14th century in France.
