BUFFALO CHECK CHRISTMAS DECOR

We love seeing this classic large gingham pattern and all of the different places people think to use buffalo check designs in their holiday decor. But before we jump into inspiration here is a little history behind the pattern.

WHAT IS BUFFALO CHECK?

Buffalo check dates back to the 1850's. It is said that a designer put a twist on a Scottish twill plaid they call “Rob Roy.” The designer owned a herd of buffalo and so came the name buffalo check.

The most popular buffalo check colors are red and black or black and white. Are you ready to jump in and see how many use this lumberjack pattern at Christmas?
