A Beautiful Inspired design, of the Kaaba Sitarah.
Thesitarah(or curtain) for the door of the Kabah known also as theburdahor theburqu was by far the most elaborate part of thekiswahand was replaced annually. Since Mamluk times,sitarahs were made in Egypt, and left Cairo with thekiswahaccompanied by the caravan of pilgrims amidst great pomp and circumstance.
The majority of the Kabah door curtains made at Dar al-Kiswah in Cairo during the 19th century follow the same basic design in which calligraphic cartouches predominate and which is characterized by the series of stylized palm trees either side of the door opening. However, because of the clever manipulation of the colour schemes and variations in the density of the embroidery, hardly any two look alike.
Kiswah (Arabic: , kiswat al-ka'bah) is the cloth that covers the Kaaba in Mecca,
Saudi Arabia. It is draped annually on the 9th day of the month of Dhu al-Hijjah, the day pilgrims leave for the plains of Mount Arafat during the Hajj.
Every year, the old Kiswa is removed, cut into small pieces, and given to certain individuals, visiting foreign Muslim dignitaries and organizations. Some of them sell their share as souvenirs of the Hajj. In earlier times, Umar bin al-Khattab would cut it into pieces and distribute them among pilgrims who used them as shelter from the heat of Mecca.
