The Herringbone Pattern, so named for a fancied resemblance to the skeleton of a fish, is our latest love.
It’s classic, simple and beautiful.
The origin of the herringbone pattern is a road system developed by the Roman Empire around 500 B.C. The interlocking pattern relies on criss-crossing chevrons and creates the stability for the road to absorb the compression of movement.
In fabric, it can be traced back to Egyptian textiles, but is generally defined as a variant of twill. It’s perfection.
Herringbone, for us, represents simple, classic design which has withstood the test of time for centuries.
Herringbone is versatile, it can be applied to a myriad materials… if you keep your eyes open you can see it everywhere.
Anything can be complicated; that’s easy. What’s difficult is making the simple, beautiful.
