FABRIC DESCRIPTION - DAMASK
Damask is a jacquard-patterned fabric that the pattern is woven into the fabric, instead of printed on it.
Usually Jacquard weaves are produced on a special loom and are characterized by complex woven-in designs, mostly with large design repeats or tapestry effects.
Here the fabric follows the pattern of an enlarged circle of diameter 17 cm with a centered cross of about 8 cm
The fabric’s design is created through the weaving technique, which is a combination of two different weaving techniques—the design is woven using a satin weave, while the background is achieved through a plain, twill, or sateen weave.
Damask is woven using only a single warp thread and a single weft thread. The resultant pattern of damask is a single colored
- The fabric is available in 7 Liturgical colors : Violet, Green, Red, Black, White, Rose, Gold
I purchased this fabric to make a church frontal for Lent/Advent and was very happy with the quality and color of it. It sews well and looks really lovely and I am very glad I purchased this from PSG Vestments as I could not source this locally.
