PAISLEY BLOUSE

PAISLEY BLOUSE

What is a paisley blouse?

Paisley or paisley pattern is an ornamental design using the buta or boteh, a teardrop-shaped motif with a curved upper end. Of Persian origin, paisley designs for blousesbecame very popular in the West in the 18th and 19th centuries, following imports of post-Mughal Empire versions of the design from India, especially in the form of Kashmir shawls, and were then imitated locally. Although the fig- or almond-like form is of Persian origin, its English name derives from the town of Paisley, in West Scotland, a centre for textiles where paisley designs were produced.

The pattern is still commonly seen in Britain and other English-speaking countries with men's ties but remains popular in other items of clothing such as blouses and shirts in Iran and South and Central Asian countries.
