Parachute Matelasse Coverlet Review
Coverlets the Best Addition
Overall Score 9.8
We found the Parachute Home matelassé coverlet a perfect addition for a cozy bed for year round comfort. The matelassé coverlet is light-weight, soft and cool to sleep on. Loomed from 100% premium combed cotton, the dual-sided Matelassé Coverlet has little raised vertical stripes, which add a subtle texture. The feel is soft and cozy without being heavy. The coverlet comes in in 5 stunning colors, steel, storm blue, dune, white or pebble grey that adds a statement to any bedroom or can be layered during the winter for extra warmth. The Parachute Matelassé coverlet is classic: chic and cozy as well as subtle, versatile and comfortable.
What is a Coverlet?
For those not familiar with this bedding term Coverlets are single-sided blankets that are lightweight, and made from a woven or quilted material. You can often find coverlets laying on top of your flat sheet, underneath the duvet, or folded at the foot of the bed. You may find one on top of your blanket during winter.
What is Matelassé?
Matelassé is a French word that refers to a cushioned textile. It’s a single layer of fabric with a raised pattern meant to mimic old hand stitched provençal quilts. The Parachute coverlet uses channel stitching – which is very linear and modern and creates attractive vertical stripes. Matelassé is a lighter alternative to quilts or blankets because it doesn’t have batting in between the layers of fabric.
