Merlette uses the finest quality cotton fabrics sourced from around the globe.
Each fabric is carefully developed especially for Merlette.
Our Cotton Lawn is most notable to Merlette, as it is our signature fabric. Being our lightest-weighing cotton, it feels like a feather as its shape relaxes carelessly between swift movements. Through the light, your silhouette is complemented by the subtle sheerness this fabric has to offer. Its natural soft hand and comfort ease make it the perfect travel companion for any season.
Our Cotton Poplin carries a more defined structure and elegance, as it creates rhythmical volume through precise drapery and cut. The smooth finish lends depth and softness to the luster of the silky surface as it illuminates in the light. The dimensional range that this cotton has to offer, makes it suitable for smooth transitions from day to night.
Our Tumbled Cotton is our specialty fabric, as it reveals a certain effortless grace. Whether you slip it on before brunch or bedtime, it’s always ready for the day with its wrinkle-free wearability and natural luster. The airy feel allows for a loose fit against your body, which is the perfect counterpart to its ingenious pillowed texture. Its internal make-up creates a subtle yet, unique tonal shift in the fabric, allowing it to reflect a constant cultivated glow.
Merlette works with artisans globally to create unique hand embroidered details.
The signature smocking begins with marking smocking dots in a grid pattern on the reverse side of the fabric and gathering it with temporary running stitches.
Having a more thoughtful connection with the clothes you wear is at the core of Merlette.
We return to cotton time and time again because this fabric is at its best when it is hand washed or run through the gentle cycle.
