After the arrival of Islam and the prohibition of the use of animals and human figures, the Islamic artists invented new and different manners to decorate various art forms; one of this way was applying different calligraphy styles in their pieces. The carpet was one those which got influenced by calligraphy
This investigation will study the importance of writing and calligraphy; and the factors, which influence on the quality and execution of rules and geometry of writing in carpet through analyzing the collected samples and a descriptive-analytical manner. It is well known that the carpet, in comparison with the other branches of art, has a limitation in execution and techniques especially in design. This investigation has analyzed the samples up to Qajar period while considering the technical limitations as the main obstacle for the lack of executing the letters in calligraphy although with utmost beauty and maturity, and also taking into consideration that the use of writing as a subsidiary factor, leads to less attention to its execution. Eventually, it is concluded that the technical limitation, in some cases human mistakes, neglect and imprecision were factors, which had influence on execution of the carpet
Between different types of writing, Nastaliq was the only script, which has received most infliction in both execution form and technical points.
