We have a shop! Sort of

We’ve been setting up a new Jali shopfront right by the Cathedral gate in Canterbury. The idea is that we’ll circulate a few different furniture items every so often, showing off what’s possible. Now, the shopfront is actually just a display, and you can’t go in. But you can marvel at the bespoke Jali products through…

This should come as a delight to a great many, especially younger student buyers and short…

New Bookcase & Cupboard Design

We have updated the way we make your bookcases and cupboards! The old design approach worked well for smaller items, such as bedside tables, but over the years we’ve received increased demand for larger units too. This prompted a bit of a rethink. The way Jali works is that, behind the scenes, we define some…
