Damask prints seem to be very popular on fabrics and items in this day and age, as well as on wedding favors
. The word "damask" is derived from the city of Damascus, the capital of Syria. Damasks were weaved at the Islamic and Byzantine weaving centers in the early Middle Ages, and were one of the basic weaving techniques founded by the people. Who would have thought their simple weaving patterns would turn into one of the most popular prints of the 21st century? At the time Damascus was very active in manufacturing and trading damask products. Damask used to be considered the linen of royalty, but today there is no class that can't wear or use the linen.
If you're a bride with million dollar standards and seeking a high class and luxurious theme, perhaps you should consider using damask themed wedding favors
. Fine damask linens, sterling silver utensils, polished china and clear crystals will be the perfect accents to your fancy table setting. Most of our damask theme wedding favors
are black and white, so the classic color scheme will create a sophisticated mood.
Today, only the finest damask fabrics are made in Ireland, Italy and especially, France. So it's no question why a damask print could also be coordinated with Parisian wedding favors
. Some of our damask and Paris wedding favors
are also featured with our fleur de lis wedding favors
as well. The fleur de lis is also a symbol of royalty. So, damasks plus fleur de lis equals the richest of the rich!Black and white damask wedding favors
are the perfect favor to add an elegant touch to your table settings and create a luxurious environment at your wedding reception. Some of our most popular damask wedding favors
include frosted glass tealight holders, place card frames, coasters, scented soaps, favor boxes and mint tins, and lip balms.
