  • A star motif represents productivity
  • A tree of life (a symbol found in several religions around the world) alludes to the Garden of Eden
  • A simple, but classic design—zig-zag patterns represent water as a vital element in life
  • Just like a modern-day barber's pole, this pattern features alternating slanted stripes
  • Patterned with geometrically serrated leaves
  • Directional design or color gradients with purposeful asymmetry and movement
