“Gingham” comes from the Malayan word genggang, or “striped.” The way we identify gingham, as being a contrasting-check shirt, was not the way in which the fabric was originally known. True gingham is distinguished primarily for being a “dyed in the yarn” fabric, meaning the yarn is dyed before it is woven. Secondly, gingham is marked by having the colored yarns (the warp) going against the uncolored yarns (the weft), to create a lightweight texture on both faces, meaning it’s essentially reversible. The name originated in the Southeast Asian countries where gingham is said to have been born. The fabric balance between colored, and neutral yarns was seen as being perfect for striped shirts.
Gingham counterfeits on as an vital part of the spring, and summer style, these are cut in contemporary silhouettes like mid-length shirt dress, asymmetric crop tops and boxy round-neck blouses, these are also popular fabric pattern for table cloth… even that apron you toss on when you’re barbecuing. Also, this pattern came in a myriad of contrasting hues from classic black and white to purple, pink and forest green, the colored checks add a bold touch to any damn look.
As per statistics the volume of Gingham apparels and accessories has been doubled on a year-over-year basis. “Gingham’s always going to be around,” said Griffin. “It’s a staple.”
