Paragraph 19. Gingham is probably the most common and serviceable of the cotton fabrics. It may be had in plain weave or in almost any combination of warp and woof threads. The fact that the design is woven into the cloth explains why the ginghams may be known by their figures appearing on both sides. This distinguishes them from calicos and other prints. Gingham is used for dresses, shirts and almost innumerable purposes. Most common width, 24" to 30". Usual price per yard, 10c to 50c.
