Persian Pickles

Persian pickles: The nickname for paisley shapes that resemble a curving kidney or teardrop.

The well-used symbol mishmashed with floral and other types of monochromatic designs give vests (as pictured), bandanas, shirts, skirts and dresses country Western appeal.

Originally, the paisley symbol was called “boteh,” which is a Persian word for shrub or cluster of leaves.

Just know that whenever I come across this clustered pattern of coolness in unusual agricultural-inspired apparel during my thrift shopping adventures, they’re coming home with Cowgirl Candace.
