"Let them eat cake, but make sure they have a napkin!" is the full version of Marie Antoinette's famous mandate. Whether or not she actually said any of these words, or whether it was one of those phrases that are attributed to someone because "they would totally say something like this", one thing is true: the French have all the best words to describe food, fashion, and fabric. Case in point: Melange. Applied to textiles, it means weaving more than one color together to create that wonderful variation of tone which results in dimensionality and richness of color. And it adds to the wrinkly-crinkly effect we love so much in linen.
