Schleicher and Maurer-Mathison: Chevron
This pattern is related to and easily confused with a Getgel and therefore also a Feather pattern. According to Schleicher the difference is the size of the pattern (meaning the interval spacing of the rakes used) with the Chevron lines being noticeably less fine then the Getgel (Feather for this database).
The pattern is created by first throwing ink onto the bath in the Turkish manner then a comb with one set of teeth would be pulled through the bath twice, once in either direction with the second pass halving the first. Then a second comb with wider set teeth than the first comb would pulled through the bath following the same steps as before.
The primary colors for this buff colored paper example are blue, brown, green and orange.
