Inspired by the uneven shape of dog's teeth, the houndstooth design in two-tone tiled pattern is the most popular tessellation (i.e. tiling using one or more geometric shapes with no overlaps and no gaps). Though different accounts exist as to it's origin, the houndstooth design was pretty much originated in Scotland in the 1800's, and then rose to prominence during 1930's when the Duke of Windsor started to appear in Scottish tweed houndstooth suits which were manufactured for the public, becoming a symbol of wealth. In the 1940's and 1950's, the houndstooth motif became a signature design for Christian Dior with houndstooth suits, shoes, and Miss Dior Perfume. In the 1940's David Jones (clothing chain store, founded in 1838) first used the famous houndstooth pattern as part of its corporate log and continues to do so today.
This classic design has maintained it's popularity for over a century and is now seen on everything from dog collars to houndstooth cushions.
