Stripes and Checks

Hann, Michael


The concern of this paper is with stripes and checks, probably among the most commonly produced, yet largely ignored, textile designs worldwide. Although perceived in the popular imagination as simplistic designs with little need for any attention or explanation, this paper highlights the potential for design variation, and identifies the range of simple variables which, if adjusted, can lead to significant design change. Differentiation is made between varieties of each design category, and various design types are listed and described.
