Reduce stress and promote creativity by coloring these beautiful paisley designs. Dating back to 200 AD, paisley designs originally flourished in Persia and later became known throughout Europe and North America. It's said by some that the Beatles brought the motif to the United States in the 1967 Summer of Love, which led to pop-culture icons like the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix embracing them; Prince paying tribute to them with his company, Paisley Park Records; and even Fender selling a Pink Paisley guitar. Paisley prints were also embraced by the public--quickly covering fashionable clothing, interior designs, and art. Today, their eye-catching teardrop shape and ornate designs continue to be popular in these arenas. They've also spread to screensavers, cell phone cases, and all other kinds of crafted items.
