    Mirror Work, also known as shisha (mirror) embroidery, is a traditional art of affixing mirrors onto a fabric. It is known as Shisheh (Persian) or Abhala Bharat embroidery. It involves the fixing of small mirrors or other reflecting metal in different shapes, on clothes or apparel. The Salwar Kameez is a garment worn by many Indian women across the length and breadth of India and offers a large canvas for any art such as Mirror work that lends them a sparkling appearance. It also enhances the look of plain fabrics or those with an otherwise dull appearance. Imaginatively used they tend to heighten the appeal of designer fabrics. Mirror work is used effectively on a variety of fabrics like cotton, silk, chiffon, crepe, georgette and Supernet. Mirror work is used as a point of interest on a seemingly plain fabric, or for strategic positioning on the fabric as part of an intended design, where the mirror used in specific shapes could lend more life-like quality to the fabric. For example, it could be Bindi on the forehead of a woman’s face, very shapely sparkling eyes of a face or the centre of a flower in a floral pattern. Mirrors are fixed to the fabric by placing the mirrors in the desired places and putting cross stitches over them in a pattern. The patterned stitches not only hold the mirrors in place but additionally contribute to the beauty of the saree as designs. Circular shape is most popular, though other shapes like square, triangular, or some other geometrical shape like polygon, hexagon, also figure in the designs. Initially practised only in Gujarat and Rajasthan, it is an art seen in most parts of the country.
