Can anyone give more information on the 'check' pattern kimonos (like a gingham check!) that are used in some prints? It seems an odd design for a kimono, yet I've noticed quite a few prints using it (often black/white, but I have seen red/white, and blue/white too). Was it a particular fashion at one time... if so does anyone know during which years? Were there specific artists who used this design? Thanks in advance for any information... by the way, this site is excellent!
