There’s just something about the bold contrast between black and white or black and red, especially when it comes to fabrics and home decor. This must be why we and so many others are absolutely enamored with buffalo plaid decor and all the amazing and trendy home decor ideas circulating the web these days.

What is Buffalo Plaid? 

If buffalo plaid or buffalo check is not a term you’re familiar with, let me fill you in. Basically buffalo plaid is a two colored fabric or pattern made up of even lines that crisscross to form large squares. Each square is completely equal in size. Where the lines cross over one another in the pattern, they combine to form lighter squares of the colors.

Black is one of the colors found most often in buffalo check, but it’s not required. When people think of buffalo plaid, they usually think of black and white or black and red. These color combos are especially popular for fall and Christmas holiday decorating. Sometimes though you’ll find buffalo check as a black and green, white with navy or just about any other color combo you can think of.  

What’s the Difference Between Buffalo Plaid and Gingham?

Gingham is very similar to buffalo plaid in that it is created by intersecting lines of two different colors to form even sized squares. However, the difference is found in the size of the squares. Gingham checks are much smaller in size than buffalo check.

Buffalo plaid is found on all types of different fabrics, especially flannel or heavier fabrics for fall and winter decor. It is most frequently a combination of black plus another color.

Gingham, however, is most often found on light-weight cotton and is usually a combination of white plus another bold color. Red and white gingham is the most classic combination for this pattern. You see gingham patterns more often in spring and summer decor.
