Spanish term or phrase:cuadro de Gales
Hi Guys: I'm doing a big translation for a new fashion portal which entails translating reviews of the latest fashion collections. With regards to the 2003 Fall-Autumn Collection by Armand Basi, the text mentions the traditional use of patterned fabrics....I presume that "cuadro de Gales" is type of check, but I just can't think what it would be as "cuadro escocés" is tartan...please help....!!

checked Welsh (wool flannel )fabric
Explanation: We have a limited quantity of traditional checked Welsh wool flannel fabric for your Welsh costume, or for dressing Welsh dolls, and when it's gone, it's gone. This is the real thing from Wales, 54" wide (or more). (If you click on the small photo at left, you will get an enlarged photo of the fabric.) The checks are 3/16" square. $20/yard.
