The meaning of marbling can shortly be described as the method of scattering insoluble paint over dense water to achieve an embroidery paper. The word ''Ebru'' was derived from the Persian word ‘ebri’. The meaning of Ebri when translated into English means “looking cloudy’. Turkish craftsmen that work on this art are called “ebrucu” meaning “marbling artist”.

Marbled paper, called ebru in Turkish, was used extensively in the binding of books and within the calligraphic panels in Turkey. The existing word ebre in Eastern Turkish, meaning variegated, points to the fact that marbling might have been known by the populations of Central Asia. Its origin might ultimately hark back to China
