The term “Buffalo Plaid” refers to a type of plaid that has a signature look defined by it’s large blocks that are formed by the joining of two yarn colors.  It’s origins likely began within Scottish kilt traditions.  The most common colors used in this print are red and black, and in America, it’s often know as “lumberjack” plaid, made legendary by the cartoons featuring folklore character, Paul Bunyan.
