French for 'quilted' or 'padded', matelassé fabric features a hand-quilted like style that's elegant and timeless. Typically, matelassé fabric is used as a coverlet or decorative sham, often placed over blankets to conceal warmth. However, it can also be used to make throw pillows, drapery, and to upholster a number of indoor and/or outdoor décor and furniture. Our inventory of matelassé fabric features dozens of beautiful styles in colors and patterns that will complement the designated living room or bedroom.
There are options available here to suit any bedding project, whether it's personal or commercial. Our collection of matelassé fabric includes both solid and patterned styles in a variety of colors. Some of these patterns include polka dot, greenery, diamond, Damask, baby-themed, stripes, plaid, floral, and many more.

If you'd like more traditional patterns to add to the vintage style of a bedroom, we've got them in beautiful shades of black, green, red, and yellow. Maybe a solid olive green or chocolate brown is better suited for your shams or coverlets. We even have vibrant summertime patterns that are great for beach homes.
