The Aztec Patterns We Use Today

The Aztec pattern is one of the many kinds of Tribal Patterns that we take inspiration from the designs that have been made by the Aztecs many years ago. It is not even considered as a design item when the Aztecs used it before. Going back to 1521 when Spaniards invaded the Aztecs, they actually already had a system of writing where they used symbols to represent an object that they wanted to write about.


Though Egyptians considered hieroglyphics as a holy or sacred writing in their own civilization, Aztecs used it to document specific happenings through depicting them by using symbols. It can be carved or drawn in tablets, special kinds of leaves, or used as paper or walls. Hieroglyphics or the form of writing to interpret the Aztec language has been preserved through time. Some of these symbols can actually create beautiful tribal patterns, which is why the use of Aztec patterns as how we know it now for purposes of any item beautification has been very rampant nowadays.
