When I think about all the various things that I love in this world, specific to prints and patterns, plaid is a definite fav. So many beautiful variations...blue, red and black., yellow, black and red...the list goes on. But in this instance, with Christmas being my favorite holiday and red being my favorite color, I wanted to focus on all-things using this festive color.
A variation on plaid is the oh-so popular buffalo plaid. Also known as buffalo check. "Buffalo plaid originated from none other than Woolrich Woolen Mills. The company began producing the Buffalo Check shirt around 1850, which means we've been rocking this plaid for over 150 years. ... Legend has it that Woolrich's designer of the distinctive style owned a herd of buffalo and that's how it got its name." Source, – Maine Today
