 Wilsonart Laminate - The Statement: Paisley
The paisley, a design icon that we have come to think of as synonymous with Indian design is not originally from India at all.
The design evolved just like the game of telephone, where information is passed from one to another, changing ever so slightly each time so that over a period of time the original has changed into something else entirely.
In a time when all things Indian are trendy, the paisley is a salute to hip, hot India.

 The Straight Dope: What's the origin of the paisley design?   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Paisley is actually an ornate pattern that was commonly used for 19th-century shawls manufactured in the town of Paisley, a textile center in Scotland.
The traditional explanation for the commalike paisley motif is that it's a pine cone, but if so it's the damnedest pine cone I ever saw.
Textile historian Martin Hardingham has a better idea; he says it's "more directly identifiable with the cashew fruit and seed pod which has been a symbol of fertility for thousands of years." Ergo, sex is at the bottom of it.
