Pied de Coq


Pied de Coq or Hound’s tooth.
History in a nutshell: these checks originated in woven wool cloth of the Scottish Lowlands, but are now used in many other materials.


Just so you know;
The traditional houndstooth check is made with alternating bands of four dark and four light threads in both warp and weft/filling woven in a simple 2:2 twill, two over – two under the warp, advancing one thread each pass.(wikipedia)

Vionnet, 1933
Diorella, eau de toilette.
