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, fabrics and other adornments from the Classical period, through the Middle Ages and into the 20th century predominantly featured flora, fauna and ancient symbols.
