Pz: (Persian: buta or boteh), known as kāzūwah in Arabic. Paisley pattern is an ornamental textile design using the boteh or buta, teardrop-shaped motif with a curved upper end often used on textiles. Paisley designs became popular in the West in the 18th and 19th centuries, following imports of post–Mughal Empire versions of the design from India, especially in the form of Kashmiri shawls. The design’s subsequent local production at the Scottish town of Paisley is responsible for its nomenclature.
