Embroidered Shisha Wall Hanging From India
In stock at our Olney showroom
ABOUT THIS WALL HANGING
Shisha (Shisheh or Abhla Bharat ) embroidery is a type of very sophisticated and decorative embroidery which attaches small pieces of mirrors to fabric. Mirror embroidery is spread throughout Asia, and today can be found in the traditional embroidery of Iran, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan. It looks beautiful as a wall hanging. All our Shisha's come from India and represent incredible value for money if you take into account the work involved to make them.
The use of decorative mirror or shisheh was introduced from Iran during the Mughal Empire. However shisheh embroidery was not used on Mughal clothing but rather found only on traditional folk clothes of South Asia and Central Asia. The term shisheh means glassin Persian, from where the word transferred to Urdu/Hindi and other related languages.
