Thanks

Hi Rose,

Damask fabric is made from Silk, Cotton, Wool, Linen, and Synthetic fibers. Damask is a rich reversable, rich patterned fabric, created by weaving. Created in the early middle ages, the name is derived from the city of Damascus, where the fabric originates. It comes in elaborate scroll patterns, or patterns with fruits and vines.

Uses:
You can use Damask in home decor such as pillows, table linens, bedding, trim for hand towels, DIY home decor crafts etc. As well you can sew clothing with Damask. It is typically used for special occasion dresses, dressy pants, bridal wear, or give an interesting lining to a coat.

Cost:
Damask fabric ranges in price. Silk demask will clearly be more expensive than a synthetic counter part.


Where To Shop:
Find Damask Fabrics at your local fabric stores, or online fabric shops.
