Black Damask . . . an explanation

Change is hard sometimes.  We like the status quo, for the most part.  I wanted to explain a change at Sew Gracious to avoid throwing you a curve ball and hopefully to avoid confusion for my customers.   This is important info so I hope you have time to give it a read.  :)
Black damask is one of the most popular fabrics today.  Brides use it for their weddings, we decorate our homes with it . . . and Sew Gracious offers all items in several kinds of black damask.

The first black damask offered at SG was Dandy Damask by Michael Miller:This fabric is still available and known in the SG Etsy shop as Black Damask


.......................................................................................................................

Then, along came a great new damask.  Because it was the 2nd form of black damask offered in the shop, it was called Black Damask Too.  It was a fun play on words to convey this fabric was also black damask, but in a different form.



.......................................................................................................................

All was well & good . . .  then manufacturer introduced a new Black Damask.  It is one that I've wanted for years, but it has only recently become available.  It did however throw a glitch in the naming process.  The 3rd Black Damask is this one:


I had a dilemma.  Another black damask.  What was I going to call it?  After a lot of thought, I decided to change the names in my Etsy Shop. 

This 3rd Black Damask is now known as BLACK DAMASK TOO.  It is, after all, another black damask in the style of the original . . . white on a black background.

The 2nd Black Damask is now known as REVERSE BLACK DAMASK TOO because it is black on a white background.

The changes have been implemented in the Etsy shop as of 6.11.10.  All items are described accordingly so hopefully there won't be any confusion for my customers.

Aw Shucks! I thought it would be a naming contest!

They look beautiful and I'm sure I'll have something of my own in the new print soon!
