Jali Box Incense Holders
a unique way. Once you have placed the lit incense into the hole inside the box simply shut the lid and watch the smoke float
through the holes in the top of the box. Jali boxes also have a handy compartment in which to keep your spare incense sticks fresh. All our Jali Boxes are made from wood either carved or with a brass inlaid design.
Jali is a Gujarati word that originally described a perforated, latticed or carved screen. Using calligraphy and geometry, intricate designs were carved into stone, later incorporating precious and semi-precious stones into the work. Today, at least in the West, we tend to describe any carved panelwork as jali, hence its use in describing incense smoke boxes with their perforated lids and side panels.
