Compared to damask, blue jeans and red lipstick are babies in the pantheon of true classics. One of the five basic patterns of the Islamic and Byzantine weaving centers of the early middle ages, for over 1000 years, everyone from kings to paupers have adorned themselves and their environments with variations of it. These days, you’ll see it commonly produced in mono-color silks and linens, featuring floral, fruit, and other organic motifs. But for the damask-inspired Verso Versailles e-reader cover, we decided to fire up the way-back machine to 14th century France when damask was more about interesting and decorative shapes…while integrating an edgy modern aesthetic. The result: a transformation of your e-reader from techie gadget to versatile stylish accessory…one you’ll be happy to show off on your daily commute, no matter who’s in the next seat over.
