Gingham Fabric

Gingham is a medium weight woven fabric originally made from dyed cotton or a cotton blend yarn.  Later gingham was manufactured of man-made fibers.  Gingham originated as a striped fabric, but later was woven into a checked or plaid pattern,  most often seen in a blue and white. Gingham has no right or wrong side to the fabric regarding color. Today you may find gingham in a variety of colors.

Gingham fabric wears well and is easy to clean and care for.  With this in mind, gingham is a great choice for household linens and lightweight clothing.
