Named after one of our favorite team members, the Marissa coverlets and shams are made from a lightweight matelassé which is 60% cotton and 40% linen. They are beautiful, washable and durable. The linen adds a natural hand and look.
The Marissa matelassé is prewashed to create a relaxed, thoroughly modern, interpretation of a traditional wedding ring quilting pattern. Woven in Portugal, this bedding is perfect for less complicated, easy lifestyle use. The fabric is also available by the yard.
COTTON COVERLETS AND MATELASSES
These are tricky! We recommend professional water cleaning and can suggest some very good companies. If you decide to wash them yourself, we do not accept responsibility. But for you adventurous ones, here's how to do it: Wash them using sheeting instructions, but they must be air dried and blocked. Blocking means stretching it back into shape. You will need a large surface area - some people use a bed. You will still have some shrinkage, but our coverlets are made large enough to accept this. Taking this on is a big task. A wet coverlet is heavy and difficult to handle. Silk/wool and ornamented products should be cleaned professionally. Again, we can offer recommendations.
