Paisley or the Paisley pattern, is the English term originating from Paisley, in Renfrewshire, Scotland,  for a textile design using the boteh or buta, a droplet-shaped vegetable motif, which originates from Persia.

Paisley pattern ties which became popular during the 1960's, in response to an interest in Indian
spirituality and culture, and the psychedelic phenomena, following
The Beatle's pilgrimage to India in 1968.
 In 1864, we find Thomas Dudgeon working in Paisley, in Central Scotland, at the Exchange Rooms, which was used as the People's Concert hall, in Moss Street, Paisley, and has continued to be used as a theatre for many years to eventually  become known as the Theatre Royal.
