The article discusses three approaches of pattern from the view point of a weaver, printer and textile designer. Most artists reportedly claim that their imaginations are influenced by natural patterns and 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.
