|Italian gray/taupe mosaic stripe stretch matelasse' brocade|
This beauty from Italy is a wonderful stretch matelasse' brocade with a textured mosaic stripe graphic pattern (13.5" repeat) in graphite gray and light taupey gray (PANTONE 18-0306, 13-5304...ish). It has about 10% widthwise stretch with perfect recovery, and is a medium weight suiting with lots of body in the drape. A reversible fabric, it has raised gray ribs on the darker side, and a somewhat smoother texture on the lighter side. There's a slight bit of sparkly sheen that is very subtle and tasteful. It's perfect for a tailored jacket, pencil skirt, fitted dress, topper coat, suit, stretch pants, etc. Dry cleaning recommended.
