A primer on the classic print known as buffalo plaid: As legend has it, the familiar layout of intersecting black and red blocks was the signature tartan of a 17th century clan from the Scottish Highlands, which made its way to the U.S. when a transplanted descendant would use woven blankets adorned with the tartan as barter in exchange for buffalo pelts offered by Native Americans. Now fairly synonymous with warmth, comfort and durability, buffalo plaid is introduced as a theme in Herschel Supply's Holiday 2014 range, used in a wide variety of silhouettes including the brand's Packable, Classics, Travel, Classic Wallets and Laptop Sleeve collections. Rubber and full grain pebbled leather detailing, along with Herschel Supply's signature striped fabric liner and classic label, are the finishing touches on each piece. The Holiday 2014 Buffalo Plaid Collection is available now through Herschel Supply retailers and online.
