I just got this by email from INM and found it interesting to share it with you guys, i got some info about it:
The House of ALLAH in Makkah. The Kaa’ba is covered by a black cloth known as ‘Kiswa’, which is produced & changed every year.

Special factory designed for the making of Kiswa in Makkah. It costs approx. SR 17million.

The cloth is made of 670kgs of silver dyed black, about 120kgs of pure gold & 50kgs of silver used in writing the Qur’anic verses over the cloth.
