Buta Collection

It came from a distant past, as an expression of the essence of ancient religions and later became an element of oriental decor in different forms and shapes.

This set has been inspired by buta pattern and decorated with geometrical floral motif symbolizing growth and fertility.

Buta is the most ancient and liked oriental motif and the name most likely derives from the Persian “boteh”, which means a shrub that looks like a thistle. The ornament of buta was so popular with the British that they borrowed it from India and reproduced in their textiles. Since then, it has been known in the West as the Paisley pattern, the name of a Scottish town, famous for these fabrics.

Buta constitutes a fascinating example of how a basic idea can be interpreted in a variety of ways by different cultures. The meaning of buta is interpreted in various ways from pine cone to palm crown to flame, which had religious significance as a symbol of immanence and eternal life.

Thus, according to the latter interpretation, to give someone a piece decorated with buta is akin to wishing long life and lasting memory.
