Thin, even stripes of red and white give this oxford cloth a summery feel without being too bright or busy. The classic basket weave pattern of oxford cloth allows fine strands of white to be interwoven throughout the material, creating an intricately small checkerboard pattern in the red that adds to the character of the cloth. Although oxford cloth is most commonly found adorning casual and dressy shirts for men, thanks to its low price tag and surprising strength, it is now bursting into the home décor scene as well. This particular red and white stripe screams to be a part of your Americana décor, perhaps paired with a solid blue fabric to create fun window coverings, wall hangings, or pillow shams! Oxford cloth is machine washable and holds its shape well, making it a great choice for many household uses.
