all you need to know about matelasse

The term matelasse (pronounced mat-luh-say) means "padded" in French and it is used to describe a type of bedding that's known for being thick and soft with a decorative texture. Matelasse is typically made from a double layer of 100% cotton cloth. It's luxurious, yet easy to care for since it's made from cotton. From a decorative standpoint, matelasse easily adapts to almost any style from casual to formal. When mixed and matched with other materials, a matelasse bedspread is the perfect complement to a shabby chic bedroom while a complete matelasse ensemble creates a more elegant look.

linensource exclusive bedding


The matelasse from linensource is special for many reasons. First, we import only the finest materials woven by master weavers in Portugal, a region renowned for producing exceptional linens. Every linensource matelasse design must meet our high standards of quality. Other reasons for purchasing matelasse bedding exclusively from linensource include:


- Pre-washed to minimize shrinkage


- Machine washable and easy care


- Hems finished in scallop, overlock or straight-edge styles


- Generously sized bedspreads and coverlets


- 100% cotton bedding gets softer with each wash


Traditionally, matelasse bedding is not available in printed designs. Different styles and patterns of tone-on-tone texturing create beautiful designs for every décor. One exception to the rule is our striking Fern Matelasse design which features printed ferns on top of a solid field of khaki, natural or cinnabar.





selecting matelasse bedding

At linensource we carry matelasse bedspreads, coverlets and shams in a variety of colors and patterns. Choosing the right product is largely a matter of taste - there are no wrong choices when bedding is this beautiful and well-made. However, a few guidelines are available to help you select the bedding that best suits your needs.

Bedspreads are formal and more decorative by nature and are sometimes intended to be removed from the bed for sleeping. That's not necessary with luxurious matelasse. Our bedspreads are thick without being overly heavy, and their easy care means you don't have to worry about every day use. Anyone who appreciates an extra layer of warmth at night will enjoy cuddling under a cozy William and Mary or Luxury Supima matelasse bedspread. The generous proportions of our bedspreads ensure a proper fit for all bed sizes. Bedspreads should reach the floor on three sides with enough room left at the top for covering pillows or folding over.


Matelasse coverlets are more casual and smaller than bedspreads, they're not intended to reach all the way to the floor. Their smaller size allows for room on three sides to show off an attractive bed skirt. Coverlets don't provide extra material at the head of the bed to cover pillows. You might say they're the epitome of easy style--lay down a matelasse coverlet, toss on a few pillows and viola, the bed is made. Adding matching or coordinating shams to a bedspread or coverlet gives the bed a more polished look no matter your décor.





caring for matelasse

All linensource matelasse bedding products are 100% machine washable. For daily care, wipe spills or stains immediately and spot clean with a damp cloth. Follow the care instructions for your product and enjoy bedding that gets softer and more luxurious with every wash. Matelasse looks expensive and special, but is just as appropriate for a child's room as it is for a guest room. It's a material that's meant to be used and enjoyed for many years.
