The pattern that we now know as 'Chevron' goes back a long, long time. Examples have been found in pottery designs which were dated to 1800 B.C., and were discovered in a palace in Crete in the modern-day country of Greece. The pattern can also be found in architecture, badges, insignias, and in many coat of arms. It is also found in many company logos like Chevron, Goyard, Manchester United, and NASA. In weddings, what is commonly known as 'Chevron' is usually associated with fabrics containing long & repetitive triangular patterns, usually of one color, against a one-color background. It became such a craze in 2013 in the US, and the Philippines was, of course, not spared. 

Admittedly, the fabric was very difficult to source locally and even though the pattern became such a hit, the fabric never really became readily available in Manila. For this wedding's pillows & boutonnieres, for example, our craft team, {etc} Handmade Goodness, had to resort to the age-old method of printing using wood blocks to get the desired results. Methinks the result was amazing, and we loved how the 'print' came out uneven yet consistent. We just love the coral color motif and how it is almost always perfect for beach weddings such as Joseph & Kristin's. This is also the first time we're working with Red Stilettos, a company based both in Manila & Iloilo. Enjoy this set! ^_^
