Design History 101: Shisha Mirrors
The Shisha Mirror Jacket is Double D Ranch's key jacket for the season and the handwork on it is amazing. We incorporated shisha mirror embroidery and traditional chain-stitch embroidery on a spring-weight canvas. There are over 350 mirrors on this jacket - all hand done.
Shisha mirror work or alba embroidery is a distinctive handcraft found in the arid areas of India such as Gujarat, Rajasthan, Haryana, and Delhi. It is usually done in bright, vivid colors. Shisha means "little glass" in Hindi. If you are interested in seeing this technique, take a look at this demo video to see how shisha mirror work is done. You will definitely appreciate all of the work in this collectible Double D Ranch jacket.
