Abstract

Islamic textiles include the textile produced in Islamic countries and regions, as a reflection of art and poetry of this religion. When Islam came to power, the tax paid by the non-Islamic countries to the Islamic government included valuable fabrics and textiles. Their style and early designs of the fabrics were inspired by the traditions and art of the tribes. But gradually the method of texture and decoration on the fabrics was influenced by the Islamic art of that era. So that on some of the pieces one can observe the Quranic verses and religious ritual. In this article, the textile motifs have been studied in the Ottoman Empire and Saudi Arabia. The weavers in this region other than paying attention to the customs, tradition and Islamic poetry’s also looked for innovation so as to prevent textiles with religious application. The paper is based on descriptive-analytical method and data collection were from library studies.
