Say hello to DARK PAISLEY
part of our new Motifs pattern collection
Our new DARK PAISLEY round zafu meditation cushion is based on traditional paisley patterns.
Dark Paisleys are one of Myoki’s favourite fabric designs, and an homage to her father’s Scottish heritage.
Paisley, Scotland was a textiles mecca in the 19th century, having established itself as a centre of the weaving industry, giving its name to the Paisley Shawl and the Paisley Pattern. The town was also home to Robertsons, famous for their orange marmalade preserves.
The town’s associations with political Radicalism were highlighted by its involvement in the Radical War of 1820, with striking weavers being instrumental in the protests. As of 1993, all of Paisley’s mills had closed, although they are memorialised in the town’s museums and civic history. *
