The textile is carefully applied to a flax linen substrate, which provides a border between the textile and frame. This product is available in our lucite frame. Our signature gold St. Frank plate is featured in the bottom right-hand corner of each piece.

Polishing

Surface gloss can be maintained by using a soft cloth and specialty plastic cleaner or polish, following cleaning fluid container instructions.

Cleaning

Begin by gently blowing away any loose dust or dirt from the lucite surface. Using a mild soap solution or a plastic cleaner and a non-abrasive lint-free cloth, wipe the surface using light pressure. To remove grease, oil, or tar deposits use hexane or kerosene followed by a soap solution.

Removing Scratches

Fine scratches may be removed by hand polishing with a plastic polish scratch remover. Remove all residue and polish with a soft cloth.

All orders placed after 2 PM PT will be processed on the next business day.

Provenance

Shisha embroidery was introduced to India from Iran during the Mughal Empire. Shisha, a Hindi word derived from the Persian shisheh, means "little glass," and refers to the incorporation of small decorative mirrors into the textile. Among Hindus in the north, west, and central states of India, Shisha embroidery is thought to have a protective quality and is tied to the front door of homes to ward off evil. Shisha embroidery is also displayed around the home as art, and created into garments, such as belts, for festivities and celebrations.
