What is the Difference Between a Quilt and a Matelassé?

While both luxury bedding options may appear similar, there is definitely a difference between a quilt and a matelassé, and it all has to do with how they are made.

Matelassé – A matelassé is made from just one piece of fabric. Unique and wonderful designs are woven or stitched onto the fabric in a quilted, padded pattern. This technique is meant to resemble the original, early, hand-stitched quilts of France. Luxury matelassé coverlets and matelassé bedspreads are a popular choice for designer bedding options.

Quilt – A quilt is typically made from 3 layers which includes a top layer of fabric, a middle layer of batting which is the soft, padding of the quilt, and a bottom layer of fabric. The top layer of fabric can be made from a single layer of material or smaller pieces of fabric can be sewn together to create a design. The process of stitching through all three of the fabric layers is called quilting and can be quite detailed as a decorative element to the finished blanket.
