This is a fair quality WOVEN bedspread, but is not the typical "Matelasse". The fabric is not a quilted or blistered texture like Matelasse, this is a light to medium weight loosely woven fabric. The pattern is pretty, it is just not Matelasse fabric. Color matches the web pic--at best a dark khaki, more "brown" with cream. If you have a cat, beware of snags.

As another reviewer noted, this is not a matelasse fabric. It's more like a woven jacquard and--something I did not see mentioned in other reviews--that means it's also reversible. The ivory on khaki/brown pictured in the photo reverses to a khaki design on an ivory background. One other thing--there are no pillow shams included even though the product photo shows them. However the bedspread is lovely and good quality (and machine washable 100% cotton) and I'm very pleased.
