The French word, matelassé means “quilted,” “padded,” or “cushioned,” and in usage with fabric, refers to hand quilted textiles. It is meant to mimic the style of hand-stitched Marseilles type quilts made in Provence, France.
Matelassé fabric can be either hand-stitched to create the decorative features of the fabric, or woven on a jacquard loom for the appearance of quilting. Matelassé fabric is a heavy, thick textile that appears to be padded, but actually has no padding within the fabric.
Our diamond matelassé bedding develops its matte finish and sumptuously soft feel during a garment washing process that results in a casual, relaxed finish.
A family-run company in Portugal weaves and tailors the fabric with meticulous care exclusively for Scout House.
Perfect for warmer months when a your quilt is too hot, or in cooler months for a little extra warmth. Keep one by the sofa for snuggling in front of the television.
This coverlet is a generous 220 x 240cm size, suitable for Queen and King bed size beds.
