For those of you outside the Middle East who struggle to find the right supplies and materials for Arabic calligraphy, I’m happy to share the link to a recently-launched website,

From the site:

We import pens, inks, papers and other supplies required for Arabic and Islamic calligraphy directly from the Middle East. We are the first and only supplier of calligraphy tools specific to Islamic calligraphy in North America.

In addition to pens, inks, papers, and accessories, we also offer complete calligraphy sets, which provide everything you need to get started with Arabic calligraphy.

Happy shopping!
