Taking its name from the Iranian city of Qashan where this craft flourished during the Mamluk Period, the art of hand colouring ceramic tiles dates back in Damascus to as early as the Umayyad Period.

The name given to Souq Hammam Al-Qishani in Damascus Old City is attributed to the Qishani ceramics that decorate some of its walls.

Today, this art of making hand painted glazed ceramic pieces is still practiced by many Syrian artists.
