One of the most popular tessellations, houndstooth is formed by applying technical weaving pattern.

It is particularly challenging to weave houndstooth on a handloom since any error is likely to stand out glaringly. The name houndstooth is because of the repeating geometric block comprising protruding teeth-like pattern; and seems to have been first created, by many accounts, in Scotland in the early 19th century.
