At ANICHINI we pride ourselves on being the first company to import matelassés from Italy, more than 25 years ago.
The matelassé weave came into being with the invention of the jacquard loom. It was created to approximate the look of the white-on-white Trapunto quilts of the 18th century. These early matelassé coverlets are still collected as antiques today. Nothing stands the test of time like an Italian matelassé. Matelassés are a favorite for their lightweight hand, traditional style, and the polished look.
Our matelassé fabrics include both modern and traditional styles woven of Egyptian cotton.
