Across much of France, the most most common ticking was a practical and relatively inexpensive stripe pattern as seen here.
But mattress tickings were also done in decorative damask patterns that resembled silk and in surprising and unusual color schemes as seen here:
Damask floral motifs combined with stripes were elegant and the patterns were beautifully designed.
Occasionally, there are very unusual motifs as in the chinoiserie pattern below which features climbing floral vines on a trellis. My all-time favorite is the last one seen on this page featuring the gallic rooster (le coq galois), the national symbol of France. This rooster is perched on a branch of an oak tree for added emphasis, the oak being a symbol of strength and fidelity.
