How do they do that?

Beautifully embroidered panel, with round, square and triangular mirrors.
True shisha cannot be bought other than in a rough round shape, so how
to make other shapes?  "Just cut with scissors" was always the reply.

Aha, a breakthrough!   This trip I found the answer - these rather 
evil, but effective snips.    Still trying to find where shisha is
blown and slivered, tantalizingly close.  Maybe all will be
revealed next trip?!!

More pix on indigo, ajrakh printing and natural dyeing soon.
