Regular visitors to the site might remember this Patternity range, which came out at the beginning of the year. Patternity is a group of ‘cult pattern pioneers’, who believe that patterns can inspire positive living. And they teamed up with John Lewis to create this collection of bathroom towels and accessories in prints that promote wellbeing. The pattern you see here is Reflect. Made up of simple geometric shapes – it's designed to feel balanced, with a sense of yin and yang about it.
