Mahrousa is a design referencing cargo trucks in the Middle East that are usually painted with Arabic calligraphy using vernacular Arabic words. In Lebanon, one can often read mahrousa (may it be protected) painted on the back of trucks alongside an image of an eye or a real hanging baby shoe. This is meant to bring good luck, and protect from the 'evil eye'. The words mahrousa ya ‘arousa uses the font “Alef Caps” with its Arabesque star-shaped pixel pattern, emphasizing the Middle Eatsern flavor of the design.
