Damask is a fabric which is synonymous with luxury and has long been considered a hallmark of refinement. A damask weave is made in such a way that the design on one side of the fabric can also be seen on its inverse. Often inspired by nature, the intricate patterns are woven into satin on a weft-faced or satin weave background, giving the fabric its renowned lustrous finish.
The patterns which are found in luxury damask tablecloths are often subtle. However, on a closer inspection; the detail which goes into every pattern is incredibly intricate. The understated designs stand the test of time as they create a delicate and luxury impression of a dining room. Many present-day manufacturers skillfully recreate leaves and flower damask patterns by scaling portions of them up or stripping them right down to create a more contemporary feel.
