Curious - Do You Recognize This Fabric?

Back at the beginning of 2010, I had a chance to tag along with Meg of Pigtown*Design to Debois Textiles - the amazing Baltimore store that carries prestigious fabric remnants at unbelievable prices. I purchased 6 1/2 yards of this silk and wool damask for only $4.59 a yard and now I'm finally getting around to asking if anyone knows the name &/or maker of this fabric?
Interestingly enough this same fabric appears on page 129 of Sills and Huniford's book, Dwellings.
I'm planning to use this fabric for one side of a duvet cover for my bed. Not sure why I'm so curious about the name - maybe it's just a compulsion to tie up loose ends in 2010.

I don't know what the name of it is, but it is gorgeous. I would love to have that and paint the walls with an oatmeal tone.
Hope that you had a wonderful Christmas, Michele.

Beautiful fabric - what a steal! Wish I knew the name but I am betting someone who reads your blog will! Happy New Year, Michelle!

HAHAHA! When it first popped up, my first thought was WANT!!!! I knew i shoulda pushed you out of the way for that.;-) It's still gorgeous. It probably came from the decorator in Alexandria where they'd gotten the most delish fabrics.

Thinking of you as a negotiated my way down Chain Bridge Rd towards the bottom yesterday as the snow picked up!

Is there no info printed on the selvage which would give you a clue? Otherwise, I think I'd try to find that designer in Alexandria mentioned by P-D. It's lovely.

Hope it is not too late to play "Name that Fabric". I believe it is Donghia's Stella. It comes in a couple of colorways. You got an AMAZING deal.

I think those are DeBois? I've seen something link this from a website. They have some gorgeous silk and wool damask in a gold, grey and beige. Hope you also featured them.
