The article discusses three approaches of pattern according to the weaver, printer and textile designer. Most artists are stated to claim that natural patterns influence their imaginations and that they come to natural and cultural resources with personal responses. Artist Janice Lessman-Moss says that certain patterns invite certain colors and that colors in the weft are a response to those in the wrap. She says, the interplay of positive and negative colors makes a pattern effective.
