Embroidery - Mirror Embroidery
The craft of mirror work, also known as Sheeshadar, is closely associated with embroidery. In this art, sewing mirror discs are neatly intricated onto the fabric. This art form is carried out in combination with other forms of embroidery in order to add more effects to the designs. The incorporation of the sheesha or the mirror is supposedly one of the most attractive features in Indian embroidery, as it considerably enhances the general effect of the pattern.
The glass is first cut into different shapes before it is embroidered into the fabric. Very, very miniscule embroidery is carried out on heavily encrusted yoke with white thread, mingled with red, orange, blue and green. They are specially used for the eyes of birds and the center of flowers.
