Black And White Damask With Stripes Window Valance

~Rayures damassé noire et blanche cantonnière~ 

Love this gorgeous, glamorous black and white damask with stripes window valance?

It’s easy to see why!

The term damask when referred to in French circles has a decidedly regal overture due to it’s introduction to Europe in the 17th century where it was only worn by royals including, French Queen Marie Antoinette and wealthy gentry. The French created their own beautiful damask designs, taken from nature and the acanthus leaf, a Mediterranean motif seen on ancient monuments and still very popular today.

Gorgeous and oh so glamorous, this black and white damask valance with stripes, another French invention designed for naval sailors so they could be seen in the water if they fell over board was spotted by Fashion designer Coco Chanel on a trip to the coast, who then wisely took the “Breton stripe” (named so, as most of the sailors hailed from Brittany in France) and made it an instant success in haute couture, as women of the world embraced this chic, Parisian style.

The size of the valance is 50″ in width x 17″ in length and will generally fit a window up to 48″ in width. The fabric is quality 100% cotton with a 70% polyester/30% cotton lining at the top of the valance giving it a double thickness for look and durability.There is 3″ rod pocket, which will fit a regular curtain rod or 2/12″ Continental rod. It is recommended you dry clean the valance only, which sits fairly flat against a window, so if you want a more gathered effect it might pay to order a few.

Considering the first-rate quality and look, this beautiful damask valance is set at a generous price and ideal for dressing up a white bathroom, adding charm and a touch of French class to a kitchen, while being just the right style of color and motif  for a Paris themed bedroom.
