WHAT WE DO & WHY BUY FROM US

The Arabic script is among the most beautiful in the world with its unique dots, loops, dashes, and curves. It is also an extremely flexible script, as letters can be broken to less that half their full shape or size, and can be made to blend seamlessly into each other. It is this malleability that renders the Arabic script perfect for calligraphy, the art of beautiful handwriting.

Arabic calligraphy began to realise its full potential after the advent of Islam in the 7th Century. As the new religion forbade depiction of animal and human figures, artists began to find expression of their creative talent in writing the verses of the Quran. Thus began the tradition of Islamic calligraphy – almost synonymous with Arabic calligraphy – where the verses of the Quran were written in highly evolved styles that were sublime yet striking, grand yet detailed.

As Muslims began settling in different parts of the world, they not only carried the Beautiful Message of the Quran with them, but also the marvellous Arabic script it was written in. Muslim kings patronised Islamic calligraphers who were well-paid artists in the court. The artists adorned many famous Islamic monuments – from the Blue Mosque in Turkey to the Taj Mahal in India – with Islamic calligraphy.

A whole new range of Islamic art took shape – from Islamic architecture to crafts like ceramic pottery, metalware, glasswork and carpets. The common feature of grand Islamic monuments as well as humble craftsworks was Islamic calligraphy.

That said, Islamic calligraphy as an art form was, and still is, primarily used to adorn walls. Islamic wall art is the most common form of Islamic decor, and thus the walls of mosques, palaces, homes and offices are often decorated with a painting of Ayat Al Kursi, or a decal of Bismillah or a canvas frame of Alhamdulillah, or a printed piece of Masha Allah.

We, at Baradari: A House of Arts and Crafts, specialise in modern Islamic canvas art decor. We blend traditional handwritten calligraphy with digital colouring and printing technologies to create a piece of contemporary Islamic art décor. We work with renowned, veteran calligraphers of northern India – once the seat of the powerful Mughal empire and with its own unique Islamic heritage, including the Taj Mahal – who write down the verses of the Quran with their deft hands. Each of these small pieces then undergoes a digital value-addition process – the text is coloured, a background is added, and sometimes decorative elements typical of Islamic art such as geometric patterns, stars and crescents are neatly placed too. All this, to give you a wholesome, modern Islamic work of art. These pieces are then printed on high-quality canvas or fine art paper that is imported from Germany.

All our designs are unique. We do NOT copy the several Islamic designs that are floating on the Internet. Our whole idea is to revive and promote Islamic art décor by making it modern and affordable. Do visit our gallery and shop for our artworks to decorate your home or to gift a loved one. Thank you.

  • Each verse of the Quran is a gem, a word of wisdom, a mercy for mankind. The Quran also has instructions that are applicable to special situations, such as those related to marriage, inheritance, treatment of prisoners caught in battles, etc. But the overall Quranic message is that of taqva, which can be defined as the fear and love of Allah.
