A group of distinctly patterned fabrics of Scottish origin, originally designed for the livery of large estates in the second half of the 19th century. The patterns are of small checks and groups of checks, woven in a right-hand twill weave and mostly of one color with an undyed light color. Some have up to three dyed colors. Historically made of wool, now the patterns can be found in any fiber.
