Syria
China
Damask was first produced in China. Its use spread over India, Persia and Syria on the Silk Road to Europe. Damasks derive their name from the city of Damascus-in that period a large city active both in trading (as part of the silk road) and in manufacture. Damasks became scarce after the 9th century outside Islamic Spain, but were revived in some places in the 13th century.
