Ordered the king size bed skirt with high expectations. It was very over sized to allow for shrinkage and so had to be washed before using.  The part of the bed skirt that is hidden by the mattress was still too large and I had to tuck the excess between the two box springs.  The skirt portion shrunk in width as well as length.  The length was o.k. but the corners of the skirt would no longer overlap thus exposing the box spring.  I managed to stretch them to acceptable  coverage but would not recommend this product.

Hmm.  This is my first purchase of Matelasse anything from company store and it's really disappointing.  I never mind paying more for good quality home goods since I expect them to last for many years. Coverlets and pillow shams get very little wear, if any, and should look like new for at least 20 years just sitting there looking pretty.
I ordered a twin coverlet and three shams in Wine color (my winter favorite). They arrived during the time period quoted and I was very pleased considering it's Christmas time!  However, the items are:
1) lacking any depth of color and in fact, look faded out of the package. I attributed that to coating or sizing added to fabrics for commercial production and assumed it would wash out.
2) are very stiff out of the package
3) faded even more after a cold water wash in mild detergent with vinegar in the rinse (my usual actions after buying anything)
4) are still stiff even after washing and vinegar in the rinse
I'm very familiar with matelasse, I'm well over 50 years old and have bought a few sets over the years. 
The construction is good quality - seams tight, no loose threads.
The color is faded.
The fabric is stiff.
These are badly over-priced.

I just received my Alexa Matelasse bedspread and shams in the color "thyme," and could not be more pleased. The fábric, weight, workmanship and color exceeded my expectacions. I finally have bed línens that I love. I have a large King-size bed, and nothing has fit it this well, draped so well and been as fine looking and feeling as these. Thank you for a perfect solution to my long search for ideal bed línens. I shall return to do business with you.
