ETRO’S PAISLEY SCARF IS IN PART A TRIBUTE TO “THE TREE OF LIFE”
BY CALEIGH OSTROM
Founded in 1968 as a textile design company, Etro was established on a family history of producing superb fabrics in intricate prints. The brand has become famed for its vibrant patterns, lustrous fabrics, off-beat color combinations, and an iconic paisley print.
Originally from Mesopotamia, the paisley motif represents the pattern of the date palm leaf and the concept of the tree of life. Seen on dresses and shawls worn by Indian women, the print comes in countless variations adorning clothing, furnishings, and accessories in Etro’s collections.
This smooth velvet scarf contains the signature print in an array of colors. Tassel fringe in purple and pink threads dangle and sway off the edges. A mix of bohemian glamour and elegance, it can wrap around or drape as a fall shawl.
