Houndstooth is a two-tone textile pattern that is recognisable by the broken checks that characterise the tiled pattern of abstract quadrilateral forms. Ledûb offers various houndstooth fabrics such as this elegant model, in two-tone blue.
The houndstooth pattern was originally used in wool woven in the Scottish Lowlands but today it is found in all sorts of different materials.
The herringbone structure is characterised by a V-shaped weave and is usually made in a twill fabric. The pattern is called herringbone because of its resemblance to the skeleton of a herring. The herringbone offers the advantages of a simple twill fabric that feels a little denser and is less likely to crease.
