Italy, May 2016
Impressive technical expertise and an exclusive design technique lie behind the creation of Decobel’s select silk damasks: unique fabrics woven from a single warp and a single weft of fine-quality threads. The decoration stands out clearly from the background thanks to the contrast created between the shiny part with the matt of the wrong side, thus allowing for the creation of sophisticated, original patterns.
“Prized silk damask, with its ancient origins, effectively testifies to the quality of Italian craft manufacture”, says Gabriele Guidoni, Art Director of Decobel. “Our company offers a rich selection, able to bring a distinctive glow to furnishings and guarantee an unforgettable impact”.
ALCEO 3212 is a fabric that comes in 5 colours, in which the silk warp and the weft in cotton, linen and acetate combine to create distinctive material effects.

The inspiration is Baroque, yet this silk is perfectly at home in contemporary settings. ALHENA 3231 is a fashionable classic, available in 6 colours, with an elegant, stylised floral pattern.
