This White and Ivory Persian Flower Paisley Pocket Square is based on a sample pattern made for printed fabrics at Garratt Print Works in Wandsworth, London, about 1850, in the V&A's collection. In the mid-19th century, paisley shawls and fabrics became indispensable accessories for the fashionable Victorians. The original design is based on the distinctive paisley motif that evolved from a stylised plant motif more than 2000 years ago.
Part of a wider collection, this particular colourway was designed as an alternative to the classic white pocket square, providing some additional yet subtle detailing within a classic colour palette of white and ivory tones. The idea behind this was to produce a square perfect for more formal occasions such as weddings while still making it a talking point through the use of an historic pattern from 1850.
