Gingham is an iconic fabric often made from dyed cotton but also produced with cotton-blend yarn. It’s thought that it could be named after the French town of Guingamp, but it may also take its name from the Malay word 'genggang', which translates as ‘separate’. Gingham was originally striped when it first arrived in Europe around four centuries ago, but it has featured a checkered pattern for many years. Gingham shirts are heavily associated with mod culture, with many brands like Ben Sherman and Lambretta producing such garments. The pattern is also frequently used for female school uniforms and is often characterised by green and white checks though many other colour schemes are available.
