Kidney shaped paisley fabric originated in India as fabric for shawls and has been easily adapted for wallpaper. The Indian name "boteh" was replaced with "Paisley" when the designs were replicated and redesigned in Paisley, Scotland, where they could be produced by machine less expensively. Today, however, the production costs have gone full circle and are once again produced mainly in India and East Asia.
