The pattern in our Red-White Polka Dot cursor pack is classic! The world changed once and for all when a dance craze called the polka swept across Europe. The exact origins of the name are a little hazy, with many favoring the theory that it referred to the Czech word pulka, meaning half, about the small steps taken in the dance. Polka dot is a pattern consisting of an array of large filled circles of the same size. Polka dots are commonly seen on children's clothing, toys, furniture, ceramics, and Central European folk art.
