For years I have been trying to find the location where shisha are produced.   Last year took me to Sayla in Gujarat and the nearby town of Limbi.   They might have been manufactured here in the past, but no more.   Indeed, the local textiles use plastic instead of mirrors.

About three hours away in the Kutch area, beautiful mirrorwork is produced in abundance.
Where are they made?!!!

Glass Inlay work panels grace many hotels.   Coloured and mirror glass is cut into intricate shapes.  Patterns are drawn on paper, lightly glued and placed on plaster, in the manner of making mosaics.

getting closer, but that will have to wait until the next trip
