Gujarat, particularly the Kutch region is famous for its Bharat and Suf embroidery. A lot of the work is very painstaking, particularly when it involves counting threads of the weave before placing your next stitch.  Mirrors are often used lavishly and held in place by aa network of fine stitches similar to the herringbone.
