Cast iron grills Tunisia
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Cast iron grills

Traditionally blue, cast iron grills provide lining for windows and air vents for kitchens and bathrooms. Their interlacing metal designs create a stark contrast with the sobriety of the whitewashed façades. Designed to embellish homes and preserve the intimacy of the people, the cast iron grills are reminiscent of the mashrabiyas of the Arabo-Andalusian tradition, sculpted wood panels that allowed women to see onto the street without being seen.
