Brightly painted and lacquered Papier-Mâché Ornaments, Figurines and Incense Holders. 

The tradition of Kashmiri Papier-Mâché dates back to the 14th century, when it was introduced from Persia to north India.

Shapes are first formed from a mixture of paper pulp, rice straw and copper sulfate. Then, layer upon layer is intricately hand-painted with a thin-tipped brush. The detailed artwork is finally preserved with a layer of clear lacquer. Each piece is time-consuming and carefully crafted.

Always assorted colors and patterns as each piece is one-of-a-kind.

Made in Kashmir, India.
