Steeped in Historic Charleston's rich, classic style and decorative arts culture, the King Charles 100% cotton matelasse bedding collection offers the ultimate blend of European, Caribbean, and Asian influences. King Charles matelasse bedding offers a luxuriously soft bedspread, coverlet, bedskirt, shams and decorative accent pillows featuring classic 19th century motifs representing the sun, a topiary, a pheasant, and a pineapple. The superior design of King Charles matelasse can be traced back to England circa 1820, incorporating key influences from that time period including the fine arts and quality craftsmanship. Each individual piece is constructed on a special weaving loom to create the luxurious design that defines this lovely classic matelasse collection. Highs and lows created during the jacquard weaving process allow the motifs and surroundings designs to come to life. The Historic Charleston Foundation was established in 1947 and is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to preserve and protect the historical, architectural and material culture that make up Charleston's rich and irreplaceable heritage.
