Paisley Leaf

The Paisley design originated from motifs representing the date palm leaf in Babylon over 2000 years ago. As well as providing the fundamental necessities of food and shelter, this ‘Tree of Life’ was a symbol of growth and fertility. The design is named after the Scottish town where luxurious cashmere shawls were produced in the Victorian era to imitate examples brought home from India, hence the name ‘Paisley Pattern’ was born.
