The New Oxford Dictionary defines paisley as “a distinctive intricate pattern of curved, feather-shaped figures based on a pine cone design from India.”
Initially appearing in the early 16th or 17th century, this pattern has lasted through the myriad changes in fashion trends, finding its way into the US. During the 1960s, paisley was one of the most popular patterns next to tie-dye. Its origins are shrouded in mystery—scholars are unsure of where it truly originated but believe it to have been somewhere between present-day Iran and the Kashmiri region overlapping the Indian-Pakistani border. The shape has been said to be symbolic of all kinds of things; lotuses, yin and yang, dragons, kidney beans, and more. The bottom line is that Paisley is time-tested, meaning it will always be in style. After all, John Lennon had his Rolls-Royce painted paisley after the Beatles visited India, and what’s cooler than that?
