A woven cloth with distinctive check or plaid pattern of thin, regular warp stripes and matching weft stripes, creating either a small or a large check, usually in two alternating colours set against a light ground. Named after Richard Tattersall who founded the horse market Tattersall in 1776, where this cloth was sold as horse blankets. It keeps its equestrian associations, but is now more commonly recognised as being used for men’s jackets and shirts .
