İznik Mavi Çini, which produced the same character as the original İznik Pottery in the restoration of many monumental works, completed the production of İznik Tile in Masjid Al-Nabawi, where the tomb of Muhammed (peace be upon him) is located in Medina, with long technical researches and applications. Mahmut Çalışkan, co-founder and technical manager of the business, stated that the Egyptian firm, who undertook the restoration in June 2019, was meeting with them and asked for samples.

Çalışkan also stated that they started production for Masjid Al-Nabawi with the contract made in December 2019 and completed the production in one month. Çalışkan said that they had the peace of fulfilling the historical responsibility of taking part in such a project.
