Welcome to Arcalliq!
My name is Katarina, Slovak, living in the UK, with the keen interest in the Arab world. I joined my very first Arabic calligraphy class in 2017 and I did so purely out of curiosity. Always believing in not having a single artistic molecule in my body, I gave myself 3 lessons before I was sure I would drop out. Instead, I fell in love.
However, I soon realised, finding tools for Arabic calligraphy was not easy. Frustrated, I started to search and found some incredibly talented, dedicated and professional craftsmen and calligraphers in Indonesia, Egypt, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and other countries who make these magnificent tools. With their help, our pens and other tools have now travelled to over 50 different countries across all continents.
I hope you enjoy browsing the store.
