KarnYang design is a traditional Thai heritage pattern of the trellis and crossed stalk design which was in effect influenced from the PhumKaoBin pattern which resembles motifs of ears of paddy and tropical leaves but KarnYang is adapted lines to be more angular in shape. The design itself creates part of a trellis together with curved lines, then it is suitable for those looking for a delicate pattern, which has been in use since King Rama II’s reign (1809-1824). The various colors are of a much gentler light green and/or soft pink background making the design attractive and unique. This KarnYang design is implied in the exuberant life.
