Inspired by its namesake, Silsal’s Kufic collection pays tribute to one of the oldest and most beloved of Arabic scripts: Kufic. Developed in 7th century Kufa, an Iraqi city 170 kilometres south of Baghdad, devoted calligraphers spent decades developing and perfecting the popular script. However, by the 13th century, the use of everyday Kufic became virtually extinct, due to its time-consuming, complex format. Instead, it was reserved for architectural inscriptions, thanks to its interesting angular lines and geometric shapes.

Silsal’s Kufic collection not only pays homage to the beautiful script, but offers a fresh revival of calligraphy from a bygone era. It brings an art form once reserved for grand monuments into the everyday home.

Silsal sets its Kufic script against contrasting block colours, allowing each letter to stand out. Long characters extend elegantly upwards, balancing the curved, squat letters by their side. Following the traditional cursive format, the collection links letters with exaggerated horizontal lines, creating a contemporary grid-like pattern.

Much of the collection is decorated with the words ‘Al-Sa'adah, Al, Barakah, Al-Noor, Al Yumn, Al-Irtika'a and Al'Suroor’, a sweet wish of 'Happiness, blessings, light, faith, prosperity and joy'. A fitting tribute to an art form that has brought wonder and delight for centuries.
