16 Indian Paisley Patterns on Brown Paper Texture

Paisley or Paisley pattern is a term in English for a design using the boteh or buta, a droplet-shaped vegetable motif of Persian origin. Such designs became very popular in the West in the 18th and 19th centuries, following imports of post-Mughal versions of the design from India, especially in the form of Kashmir shawls, and were then imitated locally. The pattern is sometimes called “Persian pickles” by American traditionalists, especially quilt-makers, or “Welsh pears” in Welsh textiles as far back as 1888.–Wikepedia.

Nowadays, paisley patterns are popular not just for fabric and textile designs but also for print and web designs. You can see them in website backgrounds or as background for invitation cards, brochures, and flyers. With the popularity of scrapbooking and other DIY projects, paisley patterns have been used to decorate or to create elegant backgrounds and motifs.
