The creation of artistic patterns dates back to our ancient past. From Egypt to Morocco, Greece to China, patterns and pattern makers played a valuable role in the creation of early arts and crafts. Ornamental carpets, tapestries and fabrics from the Classical period, through the Middle Ages and into the 20th century, predominantly featured flora, fauna and ancient symbols. Classic Patterns takes inspiration from this rich history, but draws out new and fresh nuances in pattern creation. Talented designers featured include Charlotte Day and Nicoletta Pagano.
