Well Dressed Home No. 14 - Buffalo Check

In the 1850s, this fabric design was created and found mostly in workwear. It became the quintessential lumberjack look. Jackets, shirts and hats were made from wool flannel in this pattern and were worn mostly by outdoorsmen. Now the buffalo check pattern can be found in the most sophisticated interiors of our homes.
