The ornamentation of textiles relates to their outward appearance, while simultaneously symbolizing their inward significance. They cover a wide range of human needs, further conveying meanings related to family and community ties, class and economic status, leisure and play, spirituality and religious faith, among others. The decoration of textiles is frequently used to express meanings, messages and aesthetics, demonstrating a myriad of skills that tangibly communicate the creativity of Syrian textile producers.
