Originating in ancient Persia, this beloved paisley boteh adorned royal interiors, adding a touch of nobility. Over time, it evolved into a symbol of luxury, particularly with the demand for Kashmir shawls among the elite class. In Jewish culture, the boteh motif took on new meanings, symbolizing prestige and eternity.
