Damask is a method of weaving which creates a pattern of reverse figures. One of the five basic weaving techniques of the Middle Ages, it was almost lost until the 1300s. Named for the city of Damascus, the technique was created by Byzantine and Islamic weavers. Now used to decorate our homes with fine table linens, bedding, bath towels, area rugs and other home accessories, this technique for weaving has woven its way into the tapestry of our lives.
Damask bedding includes the striped comforters by Blue Ridge. Made of pure cotton and stuffed with down, they are designed to hold warmth. This fluffy comforter comes in twin, full/queen and king sizes. Blue Ridge down pillows are available in standard and king sizes. Martha Stewart comforter sets for the master bedroom or guest room come with comforter, bed skirt, one or two shams and one or two European shams. Available in twin, full, queen and king sizes, the comforter set includes decorative pillows.
The Charter Club blanket is an alternative to down blankets. For allergy sufferers, the plush hypoallergenic down alternative is soft like down without the allergens.
