Mother-of-pearl inlay is a traditional handicraft involving the inlay of mother-of-pearl into wood. Originating in the Gaziantep region, this art form features intricate silver, copper, and bronze wirework to enhance motifs on mirrors. Placing such mirrors in a bride's dowry is a custom, reflecting a tradition from the Ottoman era where it symbolizes a man's sentiment of finding no gift more beautiful than presenting it to the woman he loves.
