MARBLING ART

It is not known exactly where and where marbling art has started. However, there are some sources showing that marbling art was performed Turkmenistan, Samarqand in 13th century and in Herat region at the east of Iran in 14th century. Marbling art spread from the east to the west by using Silk Road and other trade routes just like paper.

The oldest marbling art whose date was determined belongs to year 1447 and is at Topkapı Palace. Many marbling art artist was trained in Ottoman period. During this period, papers with marbling art on them were used as base for state documents and and official letters. The main objective in doing this was to prevent the falsification attempts along with the aesthetic values; and the mentality of putting complicated patterns on valuable papers such as checks, notes and money bill is based on this.
