As we launch our exciting chevron party range, I’ll share a little history with you. Thought the chevron was a general road sign to warn of curves in the journey? I did. Or an insignia to boast military rank? Apart from being a handy road sign or lapel decor, the chevron pattern has a deep-rooted history spanning back millenia. It is found in early art, on pottery and rock carvings. Examples can be found approximately 1800 BC in archaeological recovery of pottery designs from the palace of Knossos on Crete, modern day Greece.
Yep, Wikipedia is rather useful. Most pieces of homework in this household reference Wikipedia. How did I get through 12 years of homework as a kid without old Wiki? Or a nearby library?
