Décor Dictionary: Houndstooth

Large scale Houndstooth patterns are seriously trendy. I just love the big, beautiful, inky blue Houndstooth fabric from Tessa Proudfoot (the pic on the left)

Houndstooth:   is a duotone textile pattern characterized by broken checks or abstract four-pointed shapes that originated in the Scottish Lowlands. Historically Houndstooth was woven in wool, with a rather small pattern scale, in the traditional black-and-white colourway. Today, it is woven or printed in a wide variety of fabric, scale and colour. A large pattern scale Houndstooth is considered more contemporary.
