Cultural Patterning - influences of mark making on textiles

Have you wondered how a recognised pattern starts and defines a historic period or nationality? Patterns and repeated mark making was first depicted in cave paintings amongst many Neolithic cultures. Ancient civilisations from Egypt, Middle East, China, and India created hieroglyphics and patterns that reflected the world around them. These designs were influenced by numerous areas of life from architecture, customs, dress, religious ceremonies, and creative traditions. Their style of mark making would often become a recognised emblem of their civilisation.
