Paris Damask Party Supplies – The Background
Damask prints originated in Damascus, Syria; hence the name. Damask designs are generally printed on silk or linen. Cotton, synthetic fibers and wool are also used. Damask is a rich patterned reversible fabric. The damask pattern is formed by weaving. Damask printing is used mainly for curtains and table linen. Damasks are woven using one weft yarn and one warp yarn. This is done to make the pattern reversible. There are twill damasks that have a twill-woven pattern.
