6 Ways to Use Paisley Fabric In Your Home.
It would be hard to find a more universal design than with Paisley.
Originally from Kashmir in the Middle East, this design first found favour as finely woven silk and wool shawls for the elite of Europe in the 18th century.
An ornamental, sophisticated boho print, the design is thought to represent a floral spray combined with a cypress tree of which the teardrop shape ‘reaches the heavens’ symbolising immortality.
