Stylised patterns are usually natural, floral or art nouveau pattern. They are created by taking realistic motifs and making them more exaggerated and complex. This is usually done by adding elaborate swirls and free hand lines to the motif to make it less realistic. This motif can be repeated throughout the fabric and is usually printed onto an existing piece of fabric.
