From fantasy to fabric
Damask behind the scenes
In the center of Delft, art historian Sanny de Zoete is working on her Collection of Dutch Design Damask table linen. This short documentary shows what linen damask is and how it is made. We see Sanny with her client and designer while discussing a new design and travel with her to the weaving mill where her assignments are woven.

Sanny’s passion for the special damask fabric manifests itself in many different areas.
Do you have your own antique linen? Sanny catalogues and values linen, damask, lace and embroidery for museums, foundations and private owners. Would you like to find out more about the history of tablecloths and napkins? Sanny gives fascinating lectures on the subject. Perhaps an exhibition on table settings past and present would be just the thing for your museum or castle? Sanny is an enthusiastic guest curator for well-visited exhibitions. She also provides antique linen and damask on loan for exhibitions. Sanny is also currently writing an inspiring book on the history of linen damask.
Sanny’s passion for linen originated over 20 years ago when she was rooting around in a box of old linen at a textile sorting company.
Among the disgarded rags she found a linen damask towel with Jugendstil patterns. Wonderfully designed roses on a towel? It is a well-known fact that Jugendstil is represented in many art forms, ranging from buildings, paintings, furniture to jewellery, but Sanny did not expect to find it on something as mundane as a towel. Her interest in linen damask was raised from that moment onwards.
