Where to buy a Paisley duvet cover

The Paisley design comes from Persia. It is thought to have originated in 1500s, during the Safavid Dynasty. During the late 1700s, in the Qajar Dynasty, the Paisley pattern became very popular. Paisley came to the attention of Europe in the 1840s when soldiers in the British Army, serving in India, brought home cashmere shawls woven in the Paisley pattern. While the pattern grew less popular in 1890, it became popular again in the 1960s and 90s. This article will discuss where to buy a Paisley duvet cover.

Big-box stores

A duvet cover in Paisley will bring class to any bedroom. Big-box stores will have a selection of duvet covers. There, you may be able to find a Paisley duvet cover in the size that you need. The colours and the patterns will vary, from very dark browns with blue, green and red, to lighter Paisleys with pale blue and white, and every colour combination in between. The fabric from which the duvet cover is made will vary as well. It could be cotton, a cotton blend, or something else besides. Check the label for proper care.

Bedding store

A bedding store will have a wider collection of Paisley duvet covers that should delight the eyes and the senses. The sizes will vary, and the covers may be part of a set with other bedding included. If this is the case, then the bed sheets will have patterns and designs that will compliment the Paisley of the cover. The Paisley duvet cover may be more subtle as well, consisting of a plain white or other colour fabric with the Paisley design being worked in embroidery.

Make your own

If you do not like any of the duvet covers that you find, then make your own. Find some rich Paisley fabric at stores like Liberty of London, Sarah Hardaker, Mulberry, or find a cheaper equivalent at a fabric warehouse. Buy enough to cover both sides of your duvet. Cut the fabric to size, leaving a 1/2 inch seam allowance all the way around, plus a few inches more at the top. Lay the fabric together right side to right side, and sew along the bottom and the sides. Turn the duvet cover right side out and finish the top of the opening. Add closures such as ties, buttons, or a zipper. Insert the duvet and enjoy.
