I’ve blogged previously about how I love design work based on geometric patterns.
One of my favourite photos from my trip to Mexico last year was this piece of weaving I found in the town museum in San Lorenzo Zinacantan (a village just outside San Cristobal de las Casas, in Chiapas state).
It was a real shame that this pattern was so different from the others in the museum, and from what was on sale in local markets, so I couldn’t buy anything similar to take home. I’d also forgotten to charge my camera so this is a much lower-res picture from my mobile phone.
It also, bizarrely enough, reminds me of the seat covers on some of the Tube trains back home in London. Although clearly much nicer!
