(pronounced SHEV-rehn OR SHEV-rahn)
As one of the world’s major oil and gas companies has this name and uses a graphical representation of it in its logo, the term should be easy to remember. A chevron is a very traditional (we’re sure the fuel giant likes the associated feeling of stability) design of zigzags in a stripe layout. The pattern can be printed on or woven into a textile, as well as created by the placement of various materials. A chevron pattern is also sometimes called herringbone.
