​No. The patterns are unique and once you have purchased a pattern it automatically disappears from the platform and cannot be purchased by anyone else until the license expires. The license extends for three (3) years and during that time the right of use is yours, then it reverts back to the designer who has the right to sell the pattern to someone else.

When you click “buy” on a pattern, it automatically appears in your shopping cart. Click on the shopping cart in the top right corner. From there you can choose to proceed to checkout.

When the purchase is completed, the right of use is granted on a license by the designer for 3 years, see our terms of use for more information. This means that you can use and change the pattern however you want during the time period that you hold the right of use. Under each pattern, it is stated whether the designer’s name may be published in connection with the product.

If you want to continue using the pattern after 3 years, you can contact The Pattern Agency to extend the agreement or the designer will reach out to you. If not the full right of use reverts back to the designer automatically. The designer can then choose to sell the pattern to another customer.

Please note that copyright always remains with the designer.
