Originated from the far east, the painterly textile pattern is recognizable for its teardrop-shaped motif. It flows organically, intertwining colours and shapes. Though its origin from the far east, the print became especially popular in western culture in the sixties, with the help of the Beatles and David Bowie, among others. Paisley became symbolic of the ‘summer of love’, free spirits and wanderlust.
luxurious, free flowing and feminine
These days the paisley print has been transferred onto luxurious fabrics like silk and brocade, making the statement free flowing, feminine and bohemian chic.
We love the ornamental print on everything from maxi dresses and summer blouses, to flowing bohemian skirts. It comes in many shapes and sizes, colors and expressions. Paisley looks good with everything!
