Sturdy and practical, this elegant "jali" (lattice) tray is hand-crafted from walnut, a durable, sustainable wood that is native to Afghanistan, and hand-finished with a thin layer of protective oil.
Wooden jali screens are traditionally found instead of windows in the old houses in Afghanistan, preserving privacy and sheltering inhabitants from the strong sunshine. Small pieces of walnut are fitted together by hand, traditionally without glue, into intricate geometric patterns.
