Damask is a type of twill or satin fabric in which on the one hand the weft serves as a background and the warp forms patterns and on the other side, the opposite.
In these fabrics the front face is considered to be the side having a shiny background and matt drawings, and the other being the opposite.
It takes its origin from the Mohammedan East, towards the eleventh century, it was perfected in the thirteenth and since then, has been very much in use among Europeans.
Currently the name of "Damask" refers to the type of pattern rather than the weaving process.
