Tattersall fabric is a checked fabric. The checked pattern is made up of even checks, typically made up of narrow lines in two or more colours on top of a plain background. The warp and weft lines are generally darker on a lighter coloured background. Originally, Tattersall fabric is associated with horses as it was named after the Racehorse auctioneer Richard Tattersall, and was frequently used in horse blankets. This fabric is now most commonly used for shirts, coats, jackets, scarves and bags.
