Paisley pattern

fine design of small flower motifs; grouped in the shape of Indian pine cones, and positioned in various places on the fabric surface. Originally in red and black, it was used in India in the printing of cashmere shawls. This classic pattern appears on the fabrics of ladies' dresses, and can be styled in a wide range of ways. The name is given by the ancient Scottish town Paisley, where similar fabrics were produced which were based on the original Indian motifs.
