Antique and online stores sell antique and heirloom blankets made of matelasse fabric. Cost varies from extremely affordable to very expensive price depending on the material used and where it came from. Individual collectors may have some items made of matelasse fabric, but who would want to sell his/her cherished collections? Some people collect antique coverlets or blankets, hanging them on rods as decorative artifacts.
It is an element of bedding meant to replace a blanket, sheet, or any other item you require to keep yourself warm while sleeping. Its beauty lies in the fact that it is light, yet it has the ability to keep you comfortably warm.
You should also consider whether you want a natural filling (i.e. duck or goose down or silk) or a synthetic filling. Each has its own pros and cons. Natural-filled duvets are lighter in weight and tend to last longer than synthetic-filled ones -- as much as 30 years as compared to 10 years for synthetic fill. As against that, natural duvets cannot be washed at home, since the filling must be dried completely, which is difficult to achieve with a home dryer. Some people also have allergic reactions to the feathers in natural fill.
