Different Paths

Stripes have quite the history.  They have taken many different paths... being in and out of fashion at various times. Stripes were very popular with the court jesters in medieval times, and evolved into the favourite fabric selection for the modern day jester character, the 'clown'.  Thankfully, stripes became quite fashionable in the 1780's, after the American Revolution and have remained a popular design choice in all classes of society.  A unique motif... sometimes complex... sometimes simple... sometimes subtle, but always special.
