Zig-zagging along

What we used to call a zig-zag pattern, the design world calls a chevron. In fashion design, maybe a houndstooth print. Whatever we call it, it’s all over the place:

The chevron motif itself can be found throughout the ages all over the world, and its classic appeal lends itself easily to quirky, contemporary applications.
