The inspiration for the design of this rug, as the name suggests, is a contemporary 21st interpretation of the Kufc script. The Kufic script  is a style of Arabic script that gained prominence early on as a preferred script for Quran transcription and architectural decoration, and it has since become a reference and an archetype for a number of other Arabic scripts. It developed from the Arabic alphabet in the city of Kufa, from which its name is derived. Kufic is characterized by angular, rectilinear letterforms and its horizontal orientation.

Given the importance given in Islam to the written word, one of the most outstanding elements of the archaeological manifestations of al-Andalus. Writing clothed in sacredness, Kufic is one of the most reliable dating systems to approach the Arab world.
