Imagine tapping away on your device or reading your favourite book in the garden on a summer’s day, your stylish checked cushion not only looks great but creates security and comfort in the way that only soft furnishings can.
Whatever colour you choose, checked cushions can add a timeless style to your sofa or bedroom. As every pattern and design of fabric we purchase is limited, you know you are getting something truly special.
Where Do These Iconic Patterns Stem From?
Made famous by the likes of Burberry, Vivienne Westwood, and Chanel, checked fabrics have a rich and vibrant history going back to Scotland and the third century AD.
The word check relates to any pattern with a grid effect, but its origins come from the Scottish tartan worn by clan members in the form of kilts. These tartans would have been hand-woven using traditional weaving tools and the delivery of these rich and hardy textiles would have come at a price.
Clans and prominent families would commission their own tartan to be worn as a source of pride and prestige; a clan member could be easily identified by the tartan kilt he wore.
