The coverlets in our Matelasse Collection feature a weave that is slightly puffed, similarly to a quilt but without any actual padding. Favored for their comfort and often elegant design, matelasse coverlets have been known to last generations, becoming cherished family heirlooms. It has even been said that matelasse coverlets seem to improve with every wash. If you were to run your hand across the top of a matelasse coverlet, you would feel a soft, smooth surface. Made in USA. 100% preshrunk cotton. Machine wash & dry.
