Tartan, Gingham, Checkered & Plaid Bedding

Plaid, Tartan, Gingham & Checkered Bedding

What is the Difference between Tartan, Gingham, Checkered & Plaid Bedding?

In modern society, plaid pattern has become a very fashionable design in decor, bedding and clothes. Here is the explanation of the differences between the four designs.

“A plaid is a pattern consisting of crossed horizontal and vertical bands in two or more colors in woven cloth. It is a cloth made with a tartan pattern wrapped around the waist and cast over the shoulder and fastened at the front. The literal Gaelic meaning is “blanket”. The belted plaid or “great kilt”, earlier form of the kilt. Plaid is used as a synonym for tartan in Canada and the US.”

“Tartan is a pattern consisting of crisscrossed horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colors. Where different colors cross, which give the appearance of new colors blended from the original ones. The resulting blocks of color repeat vertically and horizontally in squares.”

“Gingham is a medium-weight balanced plain-woven fabric made from dyed cotton or cotton-blend yarn. where the coloring is on the warp yarns and always along the grain (weft). Gingham has no right or wrong side with respect to color.”

“Checkered is usually squares of two different colors usually alternating one color with white or black but not always.”

Any of these prints will add a nice touch to your bedrooms. You can accessorize with toss pillows, area rugs, wall decor, tabletop decorations, and more. These prints are normally gender neutral, too, so choose a design and color you love, and give any bedroom in your home a fresh new look and feel with plaid, tartan, gingham or checkered bedding.
