Paisley Bedding

A crooked tear drop is the hallmark of the well-known and always popular paisley pattern.  Originally developed in India long ago it made its way to the manufacturing town of Paisley, Scotland sometime in the early 19th century where it took its name.  It quickly became the most desired pattern used in the shawls of that time all over Britain and Europe. It was not until the 1960’s however that the paisley pattern became famous world-wide and since then has remained fashionable til this day.  It can be seen in handkerchiefs, ties, handbags, skirts, and of course bedding.

Why Is Paisley Bedding So Fantastic?
