Once described as “religious emotion frozen by art” by renowned Yale professor Franz Rosenthal, Thuluth is regarded as the most impressive of all Arabic scripts. Some even say that one cannot be considered a calligrapher until he has mastered it.

Silsal’s Ghida collection acts as a canvas for the unique Thuluth script. Curvaceous plump letters interlace with elegantly long vertical strokes finished with upturned hooks, which pull them heavenward.

Its ornamental style meant Thuluth was quickly adopted as the chosen script of architectural inscriptions for mosques, pillars, walls and even the decorative Sura headings in the Quran. It was often combined with Kufic script, which matched its timeless beauty and complexity.

Silsal’s adoption of the script is not just an act of artistic admiration; it’s a cultural resurrection of a painstakingly ornamental script. One that was once reserved for grand monuments and has now found its way into the homes and hearts of a new generation.
