You Need to Check This Out: Meet our new Gingham collection

29th March 2018

Firstly, just what is gingham? Gingham is a type of simple, woven cotton or linen cloth. Originally it had a regular bright coloured stripe but later appeared as a check or plaid pattern.

The colours are most often blue and white or red and white. This cool, breathable textile varies from medium to lightweight and can range from a very small, checked pattern to very large checks.

There is no right or wrong side in gingham as it has the same appearance on both sides. This is due to the fibres already being coloured before they are woven together.

This makes gingham a perfect fabric for making clothing (and also table cloths).

However at Joules we’re very fond of giving the classics a twist – so with that in mind we looked at what we could do to make this classic fabric stand out from the crowd. We’ve picked five pieces from our new Gingham Collection that need adding to your wardrobe (or suitcase) this summer. From classic dresses to waterproof coats, these are the styles you need to check out…
