It is very attractive.
It's an interesting architectural detail, and something you wouldn't see here at all.
Do you find these only in Jeddah? Why do you think they were developed?
These window coverings serve many purposes. They provide privacy so the women of the house who are not supposed to be seen by other men can see out but remain out of sight. The open weave design provides air flow, cooling the building. The older buildings did not have glass windows but used these lattice work shades. Jeddah's year round temperatures run from pleasant to extremely hot, so worrying about cold weather is not a concern.
