Jordan’s traditional ceramics and famous mosaics incorporate Islamic motifs and are all handmade. The calligraphy on some ceramics depicts the art of the Umayyad and Mamluk periods. In 1992, the government started a mosaics school in the city of Madaba, which is home to the oldest mosaic map, which depicts the Holy Land and dates to the 6th century CE. The school aims to preserve and restore old mosaics on archaeological sites.
Embroidery is another famous traditional Jordanian art. Women of Palestinian origin make traditional embroidered dresses, using varied colours and patterns, based mostly on geometric designs.
