The French word, matelasse means ''quilted, padded or cushioned", it only appears to be padded but actually has no padding in the fabric. Matelasse fabric can be very elegant, but is also known for its comfortable, casual design that improves with every washing. Matelasse fabric is used for throw pillows, coverlets, duvet covers, pillow shams, slipcovers and upholstery. Also perfect for jackets and handbags!
