The word damask actually refers to many warp-faced and weft-faced reversible textiles and has been in existence since the early Middle Ages.
But today when referring to damask we generally think of the classic black and white ornate pattern. It conjures up a feeling of opulence and luxury, which has made damask a popular choice for weddings. So with the royal wedding still fresh in our minds its the perfect theme for this month as we look at some great DIY projects to get the regal look on a budget.
