Tattersall pattern is a check or plaid fabric. It is composed of vertical and horizontal lines of the same thicknesses, evenly spaced to create a geometric pattern consisting of squares. The background and the lines are generally different colours to create a contrast. Sometimes, two different colours of lines are used as well. This pattern is colour woven into the fabric.
