Chevron Fabric

Pin It

A pattern that dates back to 1800 BC, the Chevron print is becoming one of the most popular designs of today. Whether it is simple, or like the Nebaha Chevron pillow shown at the left, the chevron print can conform to any design scheme.

The simple inverted  V-shape was initially intended to show rank in military or police, but then the design was found in the palace of Knossos on Crete (modern day Greece). It became clear that this simple pattern has deep meaning and symbolism in many cultures.

F. Schumacher has a huge collection of beautiful chevron fabrics and wallpapers. As you can see from the photos, there are countless applications for these fabrics.

There are just so many fun ways to play with these patterns. Check out our Pinterest here to see what else we have come up with!
