What is Damask Paper?
Damask is an Arabic word for a reversible figured fabric of silk, wool, linen, cotton, or synthetic fibres, with a pattern formed by weaving. Damasks always looks symmetrical and can look two toned because they are woven with one warp yarn and one weft yarn, usually with the pattern in warp-faced satin weave and the ground in weft-faced or sateen weave.

Our range of deep purple damask papers illustrate this perfectly, it is why Damask Paper is so timeless and versatile, an extremely popular choice.
