Damask fabrics with their elaborate motifs and the opulent materials used to create it, make the damask fabric one of the world's most luxurious and fascinating fabrics. The damask fabric derives its name from the city of Damascus, which was, at the time, a large city active in both the trading and manufacture of the fabric. Damask fabrics can be woven from silk, wool, linen, cotton and synthetic fibres, with a pattern formed by weaving. The pattern and design of a Damask means it is often used in many interior design schemes and it lends itself very well to a variety of applications, including upholstery, drapes, curtains and soft furnishings such as cushions. Damask weaves can now be produced in single and two-colour weaves and feature patterns of flowers, fruit and other elaborate designs. Due to the history of Damasks it can create a very formal, regal almost traditionally classic feel to a room or living space as well as bringing an opulent look and feel when used as window treatments and custom curtains and blinds.
