Houndstooth

As we make our own patterns by using Adobe Illustrator, the project reminded me of houndstooth pattern which is one of the most broadly used pattern in the fields of fashion, art, design and etc.

So as you can see in the pictures below, Houndstooth is a pattern characterized by abstract four-pointed shapes, often in black and white. The pattern is originated in woven wool cloth of the Scottish Lowlands. It is interesting that even though patterns are not extremely difficult to make (especially nowadays with software and technology we have), some of them can be very successful/long-standing icon and applied to many different media.
