Mizo was brought to Scandinavia courtesy of the Mediterranean preference for tiles and mosaic patterns. The design has a story that goes all the way back to the fall of the Roman Empire when Arab artists were left behind to fill in the gaps. According to Muslim tradition nothing from nature may be depicted, hence the Arabs became masters at producing repetitive mosaic patterns, virtually faultless in their excellence. The tiles were meant to be both inspiring and meditative. When wallpapering became an option, the pattern simply followed suit. The Mediterranean aura of this wallpaper comes from the 1960s and its characteristically warm and lively colours are still highly appreciated today.
