Matelasse Shower Matelasse is French for "padded" or "cushioned", as this type of fabric has a quilted or creped appearance and feel. This comes from the puckering effect of double weaving. We offer two 100% Egyptian cotton matelasse shower curtains made by Peacock Alley. Both options are equally well suited for an elegant bath environment. The Alyssa shower curtain features a diamond pattern design. The Vienna shower curtain features a design inspired by an 18th century French button. Both are made with sturdy metal grommets. The Vienna shower curtain is also available with a monogram. Many couples monogram the shower curtain in the traditional style with their first name initials placed first and last and their last name initial as the larger middle initial. The monogrammed shower curtain makes a unique and thoughtful wedding gift.
