We create and sell original, handwritten Islamic calligraphy printed on canvas

The Arabic script is among the most beautiful in the world, owing to its unique curves, dots, loops and dashes. As Muslims took the Quran with them across different parts of the world, they not only carried with them the Book’s beautiful message, but also the marvellous Arabic script it was written in.

Thus, began the tradition of Islamic calligraphy, the art of writing the holy verses in highly evolved stylish forms. Calligraphy became an integral part of Islamic art, and calligraphers were revered artists in the Ottoman and Mughal courts.

In the modern digital age, Islamic calligraphy continues to thrive. But free online digital Islamic calligraphy images have, quite literally, dried the pens of traditional calligraphers who, till a couple of decades ago, were much respected and well-compensated for their art.

We, at Baradari, believe that no software can compete with the mastery of a traditional calligrapher. And we wish to revive original, handwritten Islamic calligraphy by giving it a modern, contemporary twist and making it available at affordable, reasonable rates.

All our calligraphic artworks are made by master calligraphers of northern India, who work with us. These beautiful calligraphic images are then further enhanced and printed on high-quality canvas for a different, unique look which you can frame and hang in your homes, offices and other spaces.

All our artworks are for personal use only, NOT for use in any commercial project.

We hold the copyright to all our artworks, and any commercial use of them – as digital prints or physical products for resale, or for use in any for-profit project (such as prints on mugs, coasters, pillow/cushion covers, or any other physical or digital product intended for sale) – is strictly prohibited. Any violation of this condition will invite legal action on our part, and the matter will be subject to the jurisdiction of the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court, India.

    I am an Islamic art curator. I commission calligraphers in India to write verses of the Quran in beautiful forms, then I give them a modern, contemporary touch and print them on canvas.
