SP01SG-2 Green silk Damascene pillow $125.00

Did you know that Damascus s famous for its beautiful silk patterns.  Perhaps it is because, according to legend, 3 monks from Syria in the 3rd century smuggled silkworms out of China so Damascus could produce this luxurious tissue for the Roman gentry who craved its soft, vibrant look.  This pillow in deep green and black is a beautiful example of this work--made by only a few workshops in Damascus now.  Its beautiful sheen is expressed in subtle colors.  Gold fringe accents its beauty.  Measures 16".  Only one left.
