I know, I know, when it comes to gingham it’s difficult to disassociate it with early school days. My first school uniform was made from the distinctive check and, proving its longevity, my daughter is now wearing it to class too. There’s no doubt that it’s a design classic, but we’re loving the latest gingham homewares.
