The New Oxford Dictionary defines paisley as 'a distinctive intricate pattern of curved, feather-shaped figures based on a pine cone design from India' However paisley also has roots in Iran and other Persian countries. Paisley became anglicized when it arrived in Britain in the 1700's in the form of shawls imported by the East India Company. And while the pattern did not originate in Scotland, it got it's english name from the Scottish town of Paisley where paisley fabrics were produced in large quantities during the 1800s. Later paisley became associated with the psychodelic movement in the 1960s. Today, paisleys are often understated and classy and as such are commonly seen in business and formal attire.
