This Damask linen tablecloth emerged from my vintage linen stash today. It is a lovely, hardly used tablecloth. There are two of these cloths one is “small” at 8 foot long and the second is a huge banqueting table cloth at 15 foot long!
Now there’s two problems here.
1) I don’t often have a banquet and
2) I don’t have a table anywhere near that long.
This particular linen is made by weaving a pattern into the actual warp and weft of the fabric. A shiny thread is woven to create a pattern as the light alters on the fabric.
Damask linen is a beautiful fabric and maybe would make a set of very nice curtains if I was ever brave enough to cut it!
