Like the onset of a new monsoon, handicraft is a boon to the parched cultures of India. Aching to be allowed their full potential, these handicraft traditions thrive in hamlets and towns dotting lifeless urban cores. Every day, these brilliant artisans leave the comfort of their homes and tirelessly work to save the last remaining communities of Papier Mache from Kashmir.

Creating art out of the most unlikely materials, the artisans of Kashmir have certainly made a global mark with technique and talent, as demonstrated in this vibrant handicraft jewellery box. The French word "Papier Mache" translates to chewed paper". It becomes rare to find instances where byproducts of daily life are turned into immortal works of art. This exuberant handicraft transcends the bracket of artistry by serving a purpose. For well over five centuries, Papier Mache has been the face of Kashmir, adding glory and character to homes with a masterful touch of colour.
