Patterns, prints, and fabrics are increasingly popular elements of wedding invitations. Damask, that beautiful, bold pattern walking a fine line between elegant and extravagant, is making a guest appearance as the pattern of choice for wedding invitations that are both traditional and original.
By definition, “Damask” is a figured fabric of silk, wool, linen, cotton, or synthetic fibers, with a pattern formed by weaving. The term originally referred to ornamental silk fabrics, which were elaborately woven in colors and metallics, featuring woven patterns representing flowers, fruit, forms of animal life, and other types of ornament. Today, when we think of damask, we think of that bold black and white (and sometimes chocolate and white) print that provides a fun “pop” to everything it touches.
