The name ‘Oxford pillowcase’ didn’t originate from the city Oxford in England, as you might imagine, but instead took its name from the hard-wearing fabric it was originally made with – ‘Oxford cloth’. Oxford cloth was – and is – used to make shirts and, for some reason, became the cloth chosen for the more elegant and durable alternative to the simple housewife pillowcase design.
