Counterchange patterns are patterns whereby the motif and the background reverse in colour occasionally. This is usually done to create a contrast or sense of relief in the pattern. Generally two different, contrasting colours are used to create a bold effect. This pattern can use a range of motifs and is printed onto a piece of fabric after it has been manufactured.
