"Jali" means net or latticework in Hindustani (a Persian-Arabic script). In its architectural form, jali describes a perforated stone screen, usually with an ornamental pattern. Containing minute carved, delicate geometrical and floral designs, these perforated screens were an integral component of Mughal architecture. Constructed primarily using marble or sandstone, their form includes windows, railings, dividers and outer walls, which provided ventilation and screening from light, imbuing their surroundings with a calm, cool and airy environment. During the day, as sunlight streams through the jalis, the patterns form magical shadows and reflections that grace the adjacent floors and walls, entrancing and mystifying all who see them. Our Chishti journal cover portrays jali work from the 14th and 15th centuries.

The Jali Walls Chisti journal has a memento accordion pouch at the back to keep all of those loose bits and pieces in one easy-to-access place. Round corners allow the notebook to slip easily into a pocket or bag, and there's a useful ribbon page marker and elastic end-leaf enclosure that add extra convenience.
