Herringbone History (HBT)
Its name literally derives from the bones of a herring fish, which it closely resembles.
Herringbone pattern dates back to the Roman Empire, where it was used in buildings its roadways. This interlocking paving system was built on top of a base of crushed stone, which cleverly absorbed the compression of traffic and footfall, making it extremely stable and durable. This innovative way of creating roads was revolutionary because cultivating a powerful infrastructure of roman roads was vital to maintaining and developing the Roman state.
Herringbone can also be traced back to Ancient Egyptian jewelry worn by the elite. However, the earliest herringbone fabrics were found in Ancient Italy. Today is an essential fabric used in men’s tailoring.
