FOR THE LOVE ~~~ PAISLEY

This organic, tear-dropped shaped motif might conjure images in your mind of the 1960s and 70s, but the pattern is centuries old. The paisley pattern is thought to have originated in Iran during the Persian empire somewhere between 224 and 651 AD.

The name paisley comes from the Scottish town of Paisley. From around 1800 until the 1850s, Paisley was famous for the colorful shawls produced by its weavers. Because of a special edition to their handlooms and Jacquard looms, weavers in Paisley could produce the design with five colors while other weavers were limited to two.
