Check Mate! Gingham Metallic Fabric
From the wild west, to mod youth culture, rockabilly style, and seaside glamour – gingham has weaved its way in and out of fashion since the days of yore, actually way before the days of yore.

- Africa: Masaï tribe used in as part of their national costume (celebrations)
