The use of Shisha, or mirror work, in embroidery stems from three Islamic beliefs: the first, that mirrors will trap the evil eye and hold its reflection for eternity; the second, that mirrors will ward off the evil eye by reflecting it away from the wearer, and the third that mirrors will dazzle the evil eye so that it will either go blind or, at the very least, blink and miss you. In any event, you can be confident that when your hound is wearing the Shisha Martingale Collar, with it’s mirror work embroidery, evil spirits will not trouble them.
The word shisha means little glass in Hindi and the origins of shisha work can be traced back to India and the reign of Shah Jehan who built the Taj Mahal in memory of his wife, Mumtaz Mahal.
