Collection: Fabric - Houndstooth

Classic houndstooth fabric for sophisticated designs.

Houndstooth fabric is a textile type characterised by its distinctive pattern of interlocking shapes. The most common houndstooth pattern consists of alternating black and white squares, although other colour combinations are popular too.

Traditionally, Houndstooth fabric uses wool as its primary material, but cotton and synthetic materials are also common. With its classical design, Houndstooth is an eternally popular pattern which always makes an impression.

There's no question that using this fabric can elevate your clothing and home decor designs, but choosing high-quality materials is essential.

At The Yorkshire Fabric Shop, we're all about quality. Shopping with us guarantees you get to take advantage of cost-effective pricing while also creating superior products that sell quickly.


Think of the supreme quality of chenille, and you'll understand why it's such a popular material with this iconic pattern. Mills combine various materials, including wool, silk and cotton, weaving them together to enhance durability and create a soft finish.

We offer a range of stunning chenille patterns, including the Kimberley collection, which focuses on neutral tones for a classical/contemporary finish. Or, for a more rustic aesthetic, why not choose our Boxer Houndstooth pattern, which comes in deeper tones of brown, cream and orange.

Whether you use these patterns to create sofa covers, custom pillows or curtains, our Houndstooth chenille collection is the best way to inject some style into your designs.


Who says leather has to be boring? If you like the luxury appeal of leather, you'll love these fabric choices. They maintain their premium aesthetic while adding style with the Houndstooth pattern.

One of the many benefits of shopping with us is the sheer choice of fabrics we offer and our ability to provide something for everyone - including ethical leather. 

Faux leather continues to grow in popularity because it's a cruelty-free material, which ensures you can sell products to all consumers.

The Matrix collection makes a bold style statement, and it's perfect for upholstery. For a vivid aesthetic, we highly recommend purple or the sky blue colour, which is ideal for contemporary offices or bedrooms.

Plenty of choices are available, and we guarantee that our faux leather feels as good as the real thing.


Velvet houndstooth is a luxurious material with a rich texture and a slightly marbled appearance. The raised velvet piles give the fabric a distinctive look, and the houndstooth pattern provides visual interest.

Houndstooth is often seen in classic menswear garments, such as suits and overcoats, but our collection focuses on upholstery purposes. Whether you prefer traditional patterns or love art deco themes, you'll love how the Houndstooth pattern and premium quality of velvet combine.
