Calling out to art-lovers from every nook and corner of the country, Kashmiri Papier Mache celebrates the spirit of ancestral handicraft with this accessory box. The master painter rinses the hand-moulded paper with the richness of Prussian blue, adding grandeur to everyday objects and elevating them to the status of art.
With the dramatic and sophisticated look it carries, Papier Mache from Kashmir adorns family rooms across the world, absorbing all the admiration it deserves for craftsmanship. With over six hundred years of ongoing legacy, the artisans have attained mastery over depicting the diverse themes of Papier Mache. The three significant steps in the process of creating this elaborate drawer− Sakhtsazi, Pishlawun, and Naqashi go hand-in-hand.
The intricacy of the branched floral pattern for this particular artwork is a signature of Kashmir's exceptional adaptation of Persian motifs. The sky blue intertwines with strokes of Prussian blue, giving it an ethereal look. Combining function with aesthetics has always been the sole purpose of artful handicraft, bringing the joys of colour into everyday life.
In a definite attempt to revive the dwindling artform of Kashmir, we assure the forlorn Kashmiri craftsman that brighter days are ahead as the nation is slowly awakening to the genius of Indian handicraft. With little to no support from the economy, the 600-year-old art form is striving for resurrection. With an incredible eye for detail, Kashmiri Papier Mache, like any other Indian handicraft, brings humanity back into today's monotonous routine.
