The Gingham Edit

The Gingham Edit

Did you know that gingham started out as a striped fabric in South East Asia? Over 500 years ago?

Once the production moved to Manchester, UK in the 18th century, it started to be woven into checked or plaid patterns and often in blue and white. And the fabric balance between coloured, and neutral yarns was seen as being perfect for striped shirts.

Once arrived in the Western world, the name stayed, but the stripes were gone.
So, the truth is that gingham does not mean check or checked as we may think, it actually means striped.

But enough with the story telling and hop for some gingham style for kids, because there is lots this season:

1. Thelma & Louise bikini*.

2. Such a lovely dress*. Love the yellow. And you need to check the back!

3. Super soft and light waffle cotton blouse*.

4. Jumpsuits* are big this season and not only for babies.

5. Gingham blouse* with frills.

6. Frilly shorts*.

7. Cute headband*.

8. Baby romper*.

9. I love kurtas* for boys. And this summer it has to be a gingham one.

10. Shorts* that I would classify as unisex.

11. Red gingham* – cute waistband.
