What is a "matelassť"?
The word "matelassť" comes from the French "matelas" which means mattress. A matelassť coverlet or sham is a fabric that looks padded (or quilted), but actually has no padding.
The patterns are meant to mimic the style of hand-stitched Marseilles type quilts.
Matelassť coverlets are generally thinner than quilted coverlets, and convey a modern, streamlined sensibility.
