Pepita

fabric pattern with a characteristic small, two-colour check; in twill or linen weave, with 4:4 warping (this relation may differ). The most common combination of colours is white and black (or another deep colour). This pattern is used in woollen, cotton and silk fabrics. The origin of the term is most commonly ascribed to the Spanish dancer Pepita, who liked to wear this pattern; another theory claims it is derived from the Spanish "pepitas" - a fruit pip or the dark seed of the cotton plant (which is reflected in this pattern).
