Boteh Jeghe (Paisley Pattern)

Sine the dawn of civilization, many artists have created masterpieces inspired by nature. “Boteh Jeghe” ( also known as the Paisley Pattern in Europe because of the name of the Scottish city where textiles were produced with this design during 18 and 19th century ) is an ancient Iranian symbol of life. It is believed that this undying figure has its roots in the image of the cedar trees surrounding Zoroastrian temples bending towards the heat of the fire. For the poetic people of this beautiful land, this image created the symbolism of life bowing to Ahura Mazda, god of light.


One of the early masterpieces of Leon (Lemuel Avedian, the founder of TALA) is the brooch presented above. Boteh Jeghe throughout ages has ornamented many different aspects of our lives, from clothes and dresses of common people to the aigrette of King Nader (Shah of Iran 1736–47).

This delicate fine jewelry is a small tribute to a rich cultural heritage and everlasting beauty.
