What defines Irish linen Damask?
Pure linen damask is the name given to products woven from pure flax yarns in a special manner so that subtle patterns are visible even in an all white cloth, woven from all white yarns. This is a more expensive way of weaving, for it requires threads to be densely woven in contrasting directions, which creates a pattern that is visible when viewed at certain angles. Across large surfaces, lustrous damask fabrics are most extraordinary, as shifting light sources continually reveal new designs to the eye in hide-and-seek fashion.
What is the difference between single damask and double damask?
Double damask is a fabric from another era. It's even more densely woven than the beautiful single damask linen. The higher number of yarns used in the weaving allows finer definition of the designs. However, for various technical reasons, the weaving process for double damask is incredibly time consuming and this is reflected in the price.
What makes Thomas Ferguson's Irish linen damask table linen exclusive? Aside from its superb quality, Ferguson's are the last remaining weavers of Irish linen damask. If it's not woven by Ferguson's, then it's not Irish linen damask.
