Embroidery

Gujarat is known for its embroidery. Most  of these were traditionally stitched by rural communities especially women, to decorate clothes, create shawls, wall decor and wall hangings. This beautiful piece features embroidery of silken threads and (abhla) mirror work.

Shisheh, abhla embroidery, or mirror-work, is a type of embroidery which attaches small pieces of mirrors on fabric.
