This almond-like form is of Persian origin, and the textile designs using paisley in rich patterns are originally Indian, the english name ‘Paisley’ is derived from the place paisley in Scotland, a centre for textiles where paisley designs were produced.

“I have always been very keen on picking something very historic and original for the new Bridal Line. While I was browsing through a textile book at a book store, I came across a kashmiri shawl with Paisley motifs and found it very interesting. This paisley gave way to my new collection and I had developed my own paisley motifs and patterns for this line.

Indian Brides and weddings are all about rich colours and combinations. Being an Indian designer, I decided to work on very unique colour combinations but in royal jewel tones to present a vibrant wedding collection. Thus, the new collection is all about Paisley in rich Jewel Tones” ~Mrunalini Rao
