Just what is this hype about Aztec prints and what inspired this aztec trends? These are some of the questions that I have in mind when I spotted these beautiful geometrical fine patterns.
The Aztec style originates from Mexico and was influenced by a long history of tribes. Traditionally, the art prints reflected the appreciation for insects, birds, fish and animals. 21st Century Aztec trends made their first appearance back in 2009 at the spring/summer catwalk show for Matthew Williamson.
Beautiful aztec prints - mostly very geometrical in character
