Coronavirus Lockdown - Send gifts directly with free gift wrap & hand written message card
I know it's probably not possible for you to see your loved ones at the moment. So to make things easier for you, if you'd like to send a gift to someone, I can wrap it nicely and send it directly to them, including a little card with a personal message from you, all at no extra charge. Just let me know what you'd like the message to say in the notes box when ordering.
A little taster
Surely to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return (2:156) - Hand-Painted Arabic/English Wooden Heart
Assalaamu alaykum and welcome to Qalbi
Hello, my name is Claire and I am the person behind Qalbi.
I'm an artist with over 25 years of experience. I also have a degree in Arabic & Islamic Studies and have lived in Morocco, which led me to explore the beauty of Arabic & Islamic art and create a range of designs and products.
I specialise in Islamic calligraphy, personalised Arabic prints and name art and Muslim gifts for all occasions from birth to weddings to reverts to memorials.
I hope you enjoy taking a look around my website. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss a custom commission.
The Hamsa Hand - History, Meaning and Traditions
An Arabic twist on crafts
With a few exceptions, Islamic art remains fairly traditional in both style and techniques. One of the things that inspires me to try new designs is that there are lots of amazing ideas, creative techniques and skills out there, but not many have been fused with Arabic & Islam yet. As an artist, designer and general crafty-bod, this so much scope and potential. Here's a recent experiment of mine and the beginning of some idea sharing. Please come and join in the conversation.
