Textile Origin: Inspired by Marseilles, France, these exquisite white hand-quilted textiles were popular in the early 18th century for women's fashion fashion. Englishman Robert Elsden invented a weaving method on a loom in the 1740 mimicking the appearance of Marseilles hand stitched quilts. Elsden named the fabric "Marseille Cloth". Marseille, wanting to retain their culture's identity for hand quilting used the name “Matlassers, meaning “to quilt" in French. The French invention of the Jacquard Loom in 1801 commercialised this woven textile with sophisticated patterns. Matelasse woven patterns today range from botanical to geometric themes with 100% cotton being the most luxurious for use in the home. This refined classic style is the perfect addition to the most chic interiors.
