Silk Matelasse Fabric

Silk Matelassé Fabric is created by a weaving technique that simulates quilting. Matelasse is a dense fabric made with 3 or 4 sets of yarn. Two of the sets are the warp and weft. The other sets are coarse cotton or crepe and are woven in an interlacing pattern so that the yarns crisscross. After finishing, the crepe yarns shrink to create a puckered effect.
