A wide range of inscriptions of the Safavid carpets can be found in the altar carpets which contain religious themes. In addition, there are many carpets that have woven themes moving from religious texts to the mystical and lyrical poems and have often been associated with the change of calligraphy font from Sols to Nastaliq. Therefore, the question of this research is: when did the inscriptions of Nastaliq enter the Persian carpets design and what were the common themes used in it? The data for this research is collected using library resources and a descriptive, exploratory, and analytical method of research is implemented. For this purpose, all available samples have been studied. The results of the study of 49 Nastaliq inscriptions on Safavid carpets indicate that the Nastaliq font has been used in the design of the Safavid carpets since the middle of the tenth century (AH). This has been accompanied by the introduction of a large number of non-religious poems, all of which are Persian poetry.
Keywords: Safavid Carpets, Safavid Calligraphy, Persian Poetry, Epigraphy.
