The paisley, sinuous and colorful, has always had an irresistible charm. It has ancient origins, and it seems that it was used during the period of the civilization of Mesopotamia around 1600 a. C. Today the many paisley's versions are exhibited in a fascinating itinerary that collects well 150 pieces of fabrics, shawls, suits and ties. A fascinating and unmissable journey that allows you to discover many curiosities. For example, it is also called boteh, a Persian word that means "pile of leaves, and is a characteristic motif of Persian carpets. It reached the popularity in the Napoleonic era thanks to the figure of Josephine Beauharnais, Napoleon's first wife who in 1809 had less than 33 dresses made with precious cashmere shawls from India.
