In 1850, Woolrich Woolen Mills began producing warm plaid shirts they called "buffalo check". These shirts were immediately favored by lumberjacks, miners, and other people who worked in the outdoors for their warmth and timeless design. Soon, buffalo check spread to the rest of society and before long, many were wearing the distinctive plaid print. Since then, the buffalo check has become incredibly popular for everything from curtains to tablecloths. It's also a great choice for bedding, and we've collected a few of the best examples for inspiration!
