Small Gingham, the smartest and most traditional of the three varieties we hold in stock, and widely known as the school uniform Gingham. The small squares in the check pattern measure just an 8th of an inch. As with all traditional gingham, one coloured and one white yarn is used to create the pattern, resulting in a third tone just slightly lighter than the main colour. The smart look of this small gingham is ideal for workwear as well as schoolwear. The taut structure of the fabric can be worked into neat tayloring for mens and ladies shirts.
The fabric is a mix of 65% polyester and 35% cotton, lightweight but tough enough to endure hot washes, after all school activities can get a bit messy. Red, bottle green and navy blue are the most popular shades for summertime school wear,but we also have pink, blue, yellow, lilac and black to choose from. Make sure you check out our medium quarter inch gingham and large 1 inch gingham too.

Please Note: The visual appearance of fabric and colour may vary on screen between monitors due to the different screen colour settings;
The actual fabric appearances, textures, colours and quality of your fabric may not be as what you see on screen, the dyeing process between fabrics vary due to way the fabric has been woven, constructed or treated. Another factor is the type of yarn used (coarse or fine), these are key factors to consider when choosing the right fabric for your project.
We recommend you order actual fabric samples of the fabrics you are interested in. With samples you will be sure of the fabric shade, texture, quality and the fabric feel, also you will know if it is the right fabric for your application.
Important Point to remember about your colour; i.e. RED may not be the same as our RED, this is the same rule for any colour, you must request fabric samples, we do offer free samples, simply call us to order them.
