Ottoman Script Vase from Gaia & Gino

I just saw this Cali vase from Gaia and Gino on Design Milk. It immediatly made me think of old Ottoman script.

I went to the G & G site to check it out, and, sure enough, it's a Turkish company. The Cali design is based on The amazingly beautiful Ottoman calligraphy I've seen in Turkish museums and mosques.
