Laurel leaves, known as “daphni” in Greek, are a common artistic motif throughout the ancient Mediterranean world and symbolize victory and triumph. This pattern reimagines this classical element in a fresh and modern way, turning it into a geometric double border worked in calming tones of blues and greens.  An easy repeating pattern that can be adapted to any size desired, from rectangular runners to square cushion covers, it can also be worked in any three-color palette of your choosing.
