Chevron patterns are patterns which are made up of horizontal zig-zag lines. Originally, this was achieved by weaving, using two contrasting colours. The Chevron weave is similar to twill weave to create the diagonal lines in the fabric, except that it is reversed periodically to create sharp points in the weave. Nowadays, this pattern can also be printed onto fabrics.
