Damask


Damask weaves are usually produced in silk and feature woven patterns of flowers, fruit, forms of life, and other types of ornament [4]. Damask was primarily produced in China, India, Persia, and Syria, followed by the Byzantine Empire. In the 12th century, the cloth was named after the city of Damascus, famous for its beautifully designed textiles [5].
