A Jali or Jaali is the term for a perforated stone or latticed screen, usually with an ornamental pattern constructed through the use of calligraphy and geometry. This form of architectural decoration is found in Indian, Indo-Islamic and Islamic Architecture. Early Jali work was built by carving into stone, generally in geometric patterns, while later the Mughals used very finely carved plant-based designs, as at the Taj Mahal.
Made of metal-latticed screens with brass or copper finishes on iron, these lavish Jali Votives or T-Light Holders, Platters, Lamps, Photo Frames, etc are handmade by the Thathera community from Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan, India. Inspired by Mughal Royal Cenotaphs, Mosques, Tombs and even Maqbara, the Indo-Islamic design of Jali making has been splendid revived in these home décor ranges.
Since time immemorial, Jali designs have been the signature of Luxury and Royalty. The collection of these Jali decor pieces here is an amalgamation of tradition, art and human talent that adds a timelessness charm to any living room.
