Bandana Shirts And The Paisley Design

Bandanas are one of the most common pieces of kerchiefs you could possibly find. They are characterized by being these triangular or perfectly square pieces of cloth which you could make use of to either tie back your long hair, to have a sense of style, and in order for you to prevent sweat from dripping off your forehead. Another unconventional means of using the shirt would have to be making bandana shirt mens, stitching several sets of this cloth to form clothes. One of the things that make this kind of these shirts, and pieces of cloth stand out would have to be their paisley design, given that the bandana is largely characterized by the presence of this shirt.

About the Paisley Design

            The origins of this paisley design could be traced to Persian origins, which can be traced in the 18th and 19th centuries. The idea behind the design is from a design which is post-Mughal in nature, and was present in shawls that originated in Kashmir. The westernized name itself is derived from the West Scotland town, Paisley where these designs were produced. Through the years it has adopted a lot of common forms, which was influenced by culture of the particular place.

Common Forms

            The common Paisley design is characterized by a twisted teardrop, and some patterns observing the shape of figs. There also are design scholars who think that the common design is a cypress and floral spray tree, which is considered a symbol of both eternity and life in the Zoroastrial faith. There also are forms of the Zarathustra tree being planted in paradise. There also were early forms which were of bent cedars, as well as a floral motif which has originated in the Safavid and Sassanid Dynasties in Persia.
