This is a set of two Egyptian repeating patterns (Egyptian tessellation). As you can see, both of these patterns are simple in appearance.

In the book titled "Aesthetic manual, to accompany the aesthetic series of drawing books and to be used independently" (Author: Thompson L. S., Published 1893), in which they were found, it was stated that they were examples of Egyptian geometric patterns and that both originated from the Theban Tombs.

Both patterns are precisely drawn in 2D CAD software and you can download them in the 2D CAD (dwg) or vector (svg and eps) file formats.

Repeating patterns are also referred to as ‘diaper patterns’ or ‘all-over patterns’. Such geometric repeating patterns are very easy to draw with a grid, and specifically these two are drawn with a square grid. Apparently the ancient Egyptians knew the principle of drawing such repeating patterns because they used them a lot. Both patterns have been drawn in 2D CAD software and consist only of straight lines and arcs. They are fully editable, so you can modify them to meet your design specifications.

Feel free to use these tessellation patterns and save some time.
