The Paisley pattern is a term in English for a design using the boteh, a droplet-shaped vegetable motif of Persian or Iranian 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 British India, especially in the form of Kashmir shawls, and were then imitated locally. Its western name derives from the Scottish town of Paisley, a centre for textiles where quality woven paisley designs became widely produced during the early-mid 19th Century.
