The paisley design has been around for centuries. The paisley pattern is of Iranian origin, but its western name derives from the town of Paisley in central Scotland. The Scottish town of Paisley is home to textile mills which have produced exports since the 18th century. Paisley gained renown in the 19th century for its distinctively patterned wool shawls. Over the years, the shawl pattern became synonymous with the name of the town. The paisley pattern or design consists of variations on a curvy motif which resembles a bent drop of water, similar to the shape of a half of a Yin-Yang symbol. The pattern repeats the motif in a seemingly random fashion, adding dots and feathered lines for a swirly, colorful paisley design. It is a timeless pattern that can add the finishing touch to any room. Come on in and let us show you your options.
