The Arabic calligraphy writing "سيدني, مدينة الزمرد" was the translation of Sydney's nickname, "The Emerald City". This nickname comes in relation to the famous play "Emerald City" and the Oz books.

Arabic writing is usually viewed with suspicion and fear as many people associate it unjustifiably with terrorism. Thus, through showing the beauty of Arabic writing and Arabic calligraphy via printing it on hippie T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, tank tops, mugs, canvas, tote cotton bags, and mouse pads; we hope to change the perception of Arabic writing towards admiration and appreciation.
