Straight patterns can be very similar to striped patterns. The different between the two is that sometimes instead of blocks of colour, horizontal or vertical motifs can be repeated throughout the fabric. These motifs are usually floral but can also be stylised swirling motifs. The pattern is usually printed on the finished piece of fabric after manufacture and is available in a multitude of colours.
