Paisley

 

The Paisley motif, signifying fertility, reproduction, abundance has been continually used in decorative art forms over the centuries. Its first recorded inception was as a symbol to represent the shoot of date palm- the "tree of life" in the deserts of ancient Babylonian civilization.

From there it spread in all directions and flourished most spectacularly in India during the Mughal period (1526–1764). Here the distinctive shape appeared in all manner of art, from stone carvings to textiles- making not just the British but the whole of Europe wake up to its grace and beauty.

Lai's Paisley collection is our ode to this evergreen motif- handcrafted, with utmost care, in sterling silver.
