Introduction to "North African" Style

Henna artists from Morocco and other North African countries have many different styles, but are best known for the style typified by straight, draped lines, intricate patterns and geometric figures.  They often use the same pattern motifs that appear in Moroccan folk arts such as ceramics, metal work, weaving and tattooing.  Some of these appear in the sample patterns below.
