Although it originates in Persia, the teardrop or droplet design caught on through the Kashmir shawls that British soldiers brought back for their wives from the Indies. Everybody who was anybody had a Kashmir shawl, and their greatest ambassador was actually Josephine de Beauharnais, Napoleon Bonaparte's wife. However, the highly sophisticated Tibetan designs carried a very high price tag so Europeans began to imitate them. The Scottish town of Paisley became the centre of these designs, giving them its name as well as great prestige.
