I'm a sucker for all white and natural color matelasse cotton fabric. I love the dimension and texture it brings to a room or a piece of clothing. So just what it matelasse? I've downloaded the following definition from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary
noun ma·te·las·sé \¦mätəl(ˌ)ä¦sā, ¦mät(ˌ)lä-\
plural Definition of MATELASSÉA double cloth of cotton or rayon or other fibers woven on a jacquard loom and used especially for clothing, upholstery, and bedspreads and marked by raised floral or geometric designs with a puckered or quilted appearance achieved by the interlacing of threads in the weaving or the contracting of threads in the finishing.
Origin of MATELASSÉ
French, from past participle of matelasser to cushion as with a mattress, from matelas mattress, from Middle French, alteration of materas, from Old French.
So there you have it. Pretty straight forward. Why not try this current version now available in our on-line store? DIY a pillow, a throw, or even a Boho-Chic poncho or vest.
