Al-Qatt Al-Asiri is a traditional Saudi home decorating application where bright colors are hand-painted onto plastered walls as murals in geometric lines and shapes, like triangles, squares, stripes, branches and arrows.
Women of the Asir region in Saudi Arabia are credited with creating this old technique, originally intended to decorate the entryway of the home to welcome guests. The paintings eventually spread to the rest of the home, in hallways, sitting rooms, kitchens, and bedrooms. Wealthier households were adorned with more intricate designs, more colors and patterns, while not so affluent homes sported simpler designs.
