The sacred textiles of Mecca Curtain for Door of Repentance Foundation. The most iconic of theobjects associated with the Hajj are the textiles offered to the Sanctuary at Mecca. The sacred textiles comprise a number of different elements, including an overall covering (kiswa) and a belt (hizam) placed at about two-thirds of the height of the wall of the Kaba. Over the door is a curtain (sitara or burqu).
Inside the Kaba are other textiles: a curtain to the door leading to the roof known as Bab al-Tawba, and red and green textiles with chevron designs on the inside walls. Within the sanctuary, the Maqam Ibrahim was also covered with a textile. The Maqam Ibrahim (Abraham) where he is believed to have stood when rebuilding the Kaba with his son Ismail (Ishmael), traditionally had its own decorated textile. The cover was made in four panels, of which this piece is the last. The fabric used is a piece of the kiswa of the Kaba.
The piece here is made of black silk and embroidered with gold metallic thread, silver-gilt strips and sequins and cotton thread padding.
