Herringbone fabric

Herringbone fabric

HERRINGBONE is a repetitive V-shaped or ZIGZAG model. The English name "Herringbone" comes from its resemblance to the herring bones.

This type of fabric is enhanced when using two colors of yarn. The herringbone pattern is usually used for wool and cotton fabrics.

Nowadays when we talk about herringbone we refer most often to fabrics for clothing or to interior design.

It has its origin from antiquity, from the way of arranging the stone data.
