Are you looking to decorate your home with Islamic wall and door hangings? We would suggestto go for an Islamic canvas print wall hanging. That is, Islamic calligraphy printed on canvas which you can fix on your wall.
Islamic calligraphy on canvas comes under the category of modern Islamic wall art, which is different from traditional or classical Islamic wall art.
In traditional Islamic wall art, the Arabic verse from the Holy Quran is stitched with a golden thread on a black piece of cloth, mostly silk or velvet. The choice of colours comes from the hues of the fabric that drapes the Ka’abain Makkah. Classical Islamic wall art also includes vivid wall rungs, which are mostly made in Turkey or Iran or India. These carpets are adorned with intricate floral motifs and multiple elaborate borders. In the middle of the carpetsis a diligently-stitched ayator surah of the Holy Quran in calligraphy

Two trends stand out. The first is low-priced Islamic wall decalsthat can be directly stuck to the wall without the need for framing.
