Founded in 2009 by ‘cult pattern pioneers’ Anna Murray and Grace Winteringham, PATTERNITY - whose main aim is to use patterns to inspire, explore and innovate - is the world's leading specialist organisation dedicated solely to pattern.
Patternity has received international recognition "blurring boundaries" in its work with individuals, specialists and institutions across the worlds of fashion and interiors to art, architecture and science, food and drink to technology and education.
Most recently, Patternity has teamed up with hosiery specialists Pretty Polly to create Streetshapes - "wearable celebrations of the patterns that surround us everywhere we go…"
This three piece collection in black and nude is "a reminder of the powerful presence of pattern in our everyday environment – encouraging us to look up, down and around at the everyday with a fresh set of eyes.
The collection is based on the fundamental shapes that make up all matter – a bold rearrangement of circles lines, triangles and squares. The first in an ongoing series of collections with PP draws attention to urban and man-made shapes and structures."

We think they're pretty darn fabulous and pay bold and beautiful attentions to those shapes and patterns that surround us everyday. What better to pattern our pins with?!
