You don't have to spend an arm and a leg to look boho picture perfect. The affordable Tilonia Beachwrap ($15) is hand block printed by artisans of Rajasthanin (that's in India, folks). Frolic on the beach and help out Indian women printers with this playful floral pink paisley.
Paisley's everywhere these days, since bohemian and hippie looks are back in full swing. But this design is more than a common pattern--Think of paisley as the Indian or Persian yin yang. Way before the mass paisley popularity in the Summer of Love, 17th century merchants shipped paisley to Europe through the English East India Company. Believe it or not, the Scottish have dominated European paisley production since the the 1830s; the Paisley Museum and Art Gallery is in ... wait for it ... Paisley, Scotland.
