Ancient Greek key pattern ribbon Lace.
The Greek key pattern is called that because the square pieces sticking out in the pattern look rather like a key. The pattern is also known as a meander or a Greek fret. Among some Italians, these patterns are known as Greek Lines.

Meanders are common decorative elements in Greek art and Roman art.

Meanders were among the most important symbols in ancient Greece; they, perhaps, symbolized INFINITY and UNITY; many ancient Greek temples incorporated the sign of the meander.

Meander means twisting and turning, It is named after the River Meander, now called Büyük Menderes River, in South Western Turkey. This river is mentioned in the Iliad, by Homer. It is a very twisting river! The U shapes are oxbow lakes, made when the river changes course. So a meander pattern is a single path which twists back on itself. This is a good description of the Greek key.

Fretwork is a design cut out with a fretsaw. A Greek key is geometric and simple and you could imagine that it has been cut out, which explains its other name, Greek fret. Also it is one colour against a neutral background, so it is easy to carve or cut.
