    What is the history of the herringbone motif in plaids?

    The herringbone motif is a classic pattern that originated in ancient times, where it was used in textiles and weaving. The pattern is inspired by the shape of a herringbone and has a long history of use in different cultures and eras. Today it is still a widely used pattern in wooden floors and paving, but of course also in plaids.


    What is the difference between Fishbone and Herringbone?

    Fishbone and herringbone are English terms that both refer to the herringbone motif, but there is a subtle difference between them. The herringbone pattern has a more flattened and even shape, while the fishbone pattern has a more pronounced, sharper and pointed appearance, similar to the shape of a herringbone. This difference is often not clearly visible in plaids. There are suppliers who keep Fishbone for plaids with 1 color and beige and Herringbone for plaids that are woven with two colors. To avoid confusion, we only use the term herringbone.

    How do I keep a wool plaid beautiful?

    How do I maintain a woolen plaid?

    A wool plaid is best cleaned by gently dabbing with a mild wool detergent and cold water. Avoid rubbing or wringing to avoid damaging the fibers. Let it dry flat, away from direct heat sources. And to use grandmother's advice, if there is snow once then putting the plaid there, whipping it out and letting it dry flat. Snow cleans just like that wool does its own.
