Jali (jaali) and Mashrabiya are elements of traditional Indo-Islamic architecture that feature delicate organic, vegetal or geometrical ornaments carved in stone or wood.
The term Jaali is used in Central Asia – in India, Pakistan and the countries surrounding, while Mashrabia is used mostly in the Arabic world; from Iran, Iraq to Morocco and Andalusia (read more about Jaali and Mashrabia ).
In the course of the day, the movement of these patterns in silhouette across the floor enhances the pleasure of their intricate geometry. Here are a few stunning pieces of this art, so you know why I named my crochet curtains Mashrabiya 😊.
And here is my work that I gave as a present to a dearest person. 😊 I think this crochet decor gives an atmosphere of calm and serenity to this interior, makes it modern and unique, regardless of the fashion.
I invite you to crochet this beauty that will resemble a projecting window 😊
