The colour red plays an important role in Hindu customs and beliefs. Therefore, it is believed that the warmth and binding power of the red drape brings marital bliss. Bride’s first step into a new home is characterized by the ritual of her dipping her feet in alta (red colour dye) and walking barefoot on the floor. This symbolises a new phase of her life.
It also has design inspirations from traditional oriental motifs – one of them is the Paisley pattern. Paisley or ‘buta’ is a droplet-shaped motif of Persian origin that resembles a fig, a mango or a twisted teardrop. It has a long-standing tradition in India.
In the 18th and 19th century, the pattern also became popular in Europe. The designs of Kashmiri shawls imported from India were dominated by the paisley pattern, which was later imitated locally. A city named Paisley in West Scotland produced these designs at the time. Which then gave the pattern its name. We give this timeless classic a revival by reintroducing it as part of our silk and cashmere collection.
