MoreCult Summer 09 Collection. Arabic Kufi Patterns in Fashion.

MoreCult is a new Dutch based fashion design firm working on creating cross cultural designs for casual youth clothing. Arabic Type and Calligraphy are integrated into their modern clothing designs. For the summer Collection 2009, I was asked to design for them some square Kufi patterns that will be used in the collection.

The Kufi Patterns were created from the English words “More Cult”
and the Arabic translation of it “أكثر ثقافة”.

  1. Kufi in fashion! It proves the kufi’s limitless application, who knows maybe one day a rocket might be sent to Mars having Kufi writings on it…. a message for outer space creature in Kufi.

  2. hehehe

    Kufi script rules

    well actually it is interesting to see the kufi arabic calligraphic style become the most modern and contemporary arabic style nowadays, knowing that Kufi is the oldest and earliest Arabic calligraphic styles.

  3. I live in the netherlands, where can I buy this ? :D
    its really cool

  4. This is amazing, I live in Toronto, Canada. How can I order this??

  5. To Roel and Tarek, design and fabrication of this collection is still in progress. We are busy at the moment finding ways to finance production and to built a webshop. Sorry for now, we will let everyone who’s interessted know when it will be launched.

    Thanks for your positive comments, we are glad to hear from people that like our stuff!!

    Peace

  6. Colours are a bit 80s :P but the design is interesting in application :D

    Arabic is so known for its graceful contours and rhythmic nature – so it seems apt that Kufic is now the dominant, contemporary Arabic script as it has everything a graphic artists / designers needs, angles and edges, dimension and versatility without seeming too traditional.

    So ironic as you said Pascal, that it is like the oldest calligraphic style, and centuries later it still stands up so well.

    أنا أحبّ العربية

  9. Heya i’m for the first time here. I came across this board and I find It really useful & it helped me out much. I hope to give something back and aid others like you helped me. Cheers,

  10. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s
    both equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell
    you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something regarding
    this.

  11. An option to working with a cash for cars Phoenix
    dealership is to sell the car to a junkyard.
    No one wants to just give away the vehicle for free, no matter how
    long it is based on the garage or the backyard gathering dust.

    They bargain very less money for your scrap vehicle.
