fabric description
Denotes a family of patterns, of which, it, itself belongs to the larger twill family. traditional houndstooth check is made with alternating bands of four dark and four light threads in both warp and weft/filling woven in a simple 2:2 twill, two over/two under the warp, advancing one thread each pass. The way the dark and light yarns interact with the twill creates the ‘tooth’. This figure created by the weave is called a tessellation (tiling) and is then repeated out, with no overlaps, to form a larger collection of patterns Sometimes known by the French name “Pied de poule”, which means “foot of hen”. A decorative weave more than others, whose weave are based on function. Originated in the Scottish lowlands. Characterized by broken checks or abstract four-pointed shapes. A handsome and masculine pattern that is often taken as a symbol of high-quality fashion.
