Arrived to Andalusia through Persia.
The Persian culture constantly received all the knowledge from Asia thanks to the connection with the Silk Route (Xian – Persia).
The Andalusian Tibor is the result of the cultural mixture of the Andalusian ceramics; the form comes from Chinese ceramics while the decoration is a balanced combination of Persian floral richness and Islamic geometry.
