I don't feel that "Persian Pickle" is a common enough colloquialism for paisley to be featured so prominently. There's also no citation, the existing citation is to a fiction book called the "Persion Pickle Club"...

Meaning of Boteh
Boteh, بوته I believe، is a Persian word meaning a bush or a bushy plant (Steingass Dictionary, also it gives Brushwood). It is incorrectly attributed to the Hindi Bota which means Flower. Jegheh جغه is a crest with which a wrestler is decorated- (Steingass Dictionary- these are the smaller forms). --Wool Bridge (talk) 13:53, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
What Patterns Are Similar to Paisley?
Paisley seems to be an umbrella term—I've seen some designs akin to paisley in style but different shapes/structures, not "twisted teardrop shaped". They are frequently just called henna or mehndi, which I think is just the medium, not the pattern. People seem to treat these three as synonyms, but their are so many varying styles that it's confusing. Can anyone help clear this up? Thanks, —L 188.8.131.52 (talk) 21:15, 27 September 2013 (UTC) In The Netherlands the paisley design is found on cloths which most often are used as wall hangings. They are called "wortelnoten doeken"(or "worteldoeken")as the pattern is seen as resembling the patterns in walnut. Usually made of wool, with a black centre and fringe and with dark browns and reds as predominant colours, they have been part of Dutch interiors since colonial days. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 18:09, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
The Golden Yarns of Zari
I'm trying to compact the repetitious captions of some of the pix:
- Persian Silk Brocade. Persian Textile (The Golden Yarns of Zari - Brocade). Silk Brocade with Golden Thread (Golabetoon). Paisley Left and Right (Bote Jeghe). (Persian Paisley)
- Persian Silk Brocade. Persian Textile (The Golden Yarns of Zari - Brocade). Paisley Right-Leaning (Bote Jeghe). (Persian Paisley)

220.127.116.11 (talk · contribs) added this category but it's not directly verifiable from the article. The current text perhaps hints at it—one could make an educated guess, but that would be WP:OR. Particularly since the term can carry negative connotation, it's better to wait until we have some scholarly cites for the designation before categorising as such.—Aquegg (talk) 05:36, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
Merge of Paisley (design) and Buta (ornament)
Couldn't find any discussion on this elsewhere... so please move this if it's in the wrong place...
The actual patterns shown in the photographs on the Buta page look a lot more like the traditional patterns commonly printed and sold as paisley (particularly kerchiefs). The main difference appears so be in the proportionate size of the feathering and the overall visibility of the solid lines forming the shape of the teardrop. Buta, and most traditional paisley I've seen (search your favourite online marketplace for Paisley Bandana) has a visible line marking the teardrop, and feathering that is not more than about 20 % of the overall width of the design. Both elements tend to be on the same background.
This is of course based on my own experience of what's called traditional Paisely in the UK. But I'd say the pic on the Buta page is more recognisable as traditional Paisley than the images shown on the Paisley page (expect the stamp).
