The present online exhibition is based on an onsite event that was opened in March 2021 in the gallery of the Textile Research Centre, Leiden, the Netherlands. Because of the corona pandemic, few people could at first enjoy the actual exhibition. We hope that this online display with accompanying texts will give a good impression of the range, versatility and uses of the buteh/paisley motif.
