History of houndstooth fabric
The black and white abstract checkerboard pattern with a vague resemblance to a chicken-foot print known in French as the pied de poule and in English as houndstooth, first appeared in the 1800s in the Scottish lowlands. Then, it was called Shepherd’s check or Dogtooth, and was mostly used on woven wool cloth outerwear for sheepherders. Today, the duo-tone pattern can be found on everything from tweed jackets to designer stiletto heels. From 1959 Christian Dior began incorporating the pattern into his designs. Rather than weaving the pattern, as was the style of the British, Dior and subsequent designers, including Louis Vuitton and Chanel, would instead print the distinctive shapes onto fabric for their women’s wear collections.
