Matelassé: (pronounced: mat-la-SAY) is a stitching technique which is used to give  a pattern that appears quilted or padded. 

I came across a few clothing items and fashion accessories which contain this weaving technique (which by the way is a favorite of mine, as it produces an expensive feel to fabrics, as well as the vintage-padded look. 

This technique is said to mimic the the style of hand-stitched quilts made in Marseilles, France. All items shown on the image above incorporate this technique in different ways/styles.
