Rated 4 out of 5áby LuvsBubbly Beautiful deep red bedspread
The name "matelasse" is a bit deceiving, because the fabric of that name I remember from years ago was a thin, summery-weight puckered fabric somewhat like seersucker. This is much heavier, with a sort of basket-weave texture, but it is light enough so I can sleep under it without feeling weighed down. I expected it would have a backing of some kind, perhaps in a similar-colored plain cotton or quilted cotton, but no, it is just a single layer of fabric of some substance. I ordered the king-size, somewhat concerned how it would fit my Calif. King bed, but the fit (so far--it hasn't been washed yet!) is generous & goes to the floor on all 3 sides, with plenty of lap-over to cover my king-size pillows. I hope the rich red color doesn't fade or wash out in the laundry! If it does, I will report back! So far I am happy with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5áby GoldenRetrieverTaosLover Great quality and weight, usable all year
I have 4 of these they are so good. Substantial weight, yet can be used in Michigan's variable summer. Generous cut so it drapes nearly to the floor even with tall beds. Due to its weight, it must be washed and dried in high capacity machines. The navy is a bright, rich hue. The bay leaf green is a luscious, soothing color I use in spring. The claret red is an odd color--not burgundy, not true red, not rose. I've had one spread for several years and after multiple washings it is starting to fade slightly, which actually looks kind of nice and is certainly not enough to replace the bedspread. The curved hem at the bottom offers a nice line. I purchased a king coverlet by mistake but it fit perfectly as a bedspread on a queen bed. These are well worth the price and look so nice on the beds.

Rated 4 out of 5áby RaleighNCLLBeanShopper Great Bedspread, BUT . . . .
I love this bedspread. It is a good weight, great quality and pattern. Very classic!
BUT. . . the color, New Khaki, is not as it is pictured. The actual color, is what I would label SAGE. I appreciate the prior review that also provided this warning. It is NOT the color that is pictured. No clue what kind of lighting, etc was used to get the color that is shown with the online swatches.
Having said that, I was able to make the color work in my room. Altho, it is not a color I would have chosen.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Run6014 Beautiful, high quality bedspread
After replacing cheaper brand comforters and bedspreads, this is a keeper. The material is high quality. Nice pattern. Great color selection. I also purchased two sets of flannel pillow cases as accent pieces.
I can't say enough about the high quality of this bedspread compared to what is carried in stores.

Rated 5 out of 5áby PMTex Good all-year quality
This is the third Vintage MatelassÚ Bedspread that we've purchased from LLBean...for different beds...not as replacements. They are well-sized and good quality. They hold up to use and to washing. We haven't noticed any shrinkage or loss of color. I recommend this product.

I have purchased this item for other beds previously and have been very pleased with the way they look, launder and wear. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a well-made, good looking bed covering.

Rated 5 out of 5áby CharlestowneShopper Nice weight and fabric texture
First, it was HARD to find a bedspread because many people have gone to comforters with skirts. We wanted the simplicity of a bedspread, and after looking many places, L.L.Bean had the best selection. This bedspread isn't flimsy and I love the texture.

Rated 5 out of 5áby rivercat Beautiful spread !
I was delighted to receive my new bedspread and find it fits perfectly (having measured beforehand). the color is just what the picture showed, weight is substantial...not too heavy, not too light. Love the pattern.
