*Matelasse (French) is a weaving or stitching technique yielding a pattern that appears quilted or padded. Matelasse may achieved by hand, on a jacquard loom or quilting machine. It is meant to mimic the style of hand-stitched quilts made in Marseilles, France. It is a heavy, thick textile that appears to be padded, but actually has no padding within the fabric.
