Papier Mache Ornaments

We have the perfect handcrafted ornaments for this season - colorful, richly decorated with kashmiri motifs and available in different sizes.

The skilled artisans involved with this painstaking process are called sakhta makers. The materials involved with this process are discarded paper, cloth, straw of rice plant, copper sulfate, which are mixed and made into a pulp. The paper, after immersing in water for 4–5 weeks, is taken out and made into a pulp and dried. The dried paper is then converted to a powder.

These ornaments are made with traditional Kashmiri (northern state in India) papier mache and hand-painted by a skilled artisan.

Size - Available in 1 inch, 2 inch, 3 inch 
Prints - All different prints/motifs
