have their own different-yet-similar geometric patterns.

Looms!

The similarity among patterns would come from all cultures having the same design challenge: There’s only so much you can do with line patterns, as in weaving or with a knitting pattern. Right? Have I broken my own case? ;)

I can’t get enough of the updated versions of these patterns, either…
