Deriving cultural influence from Kashmir's eventful history, the art of Papier Mache is the region's adaption of Persia's Papier Mache. The Persian Sufis brought along with them the intricate patterns of their culture before Kashmir brilliantly made the artform her own. This handcrafted jewellery box allows you glimpses of Kashmir's vast countryside and the sight of incessant artisans toiling till daybreak.

Handicraft connects the artisan and the buyer with a degree of intimacy unforeseen before. This jewellery box has undergone three crucial stages before reaching the epitome of perfection. From the moment the artisan begins to mould the paper pulp, a journey of attachment and passion begins, making the process involved in handicraft stand out in today's time. After hours of extensive manual work, the artisan goes to rest at the end of the day before he resumes the process again.

The process involved in the making of these handicrafts is carefully designed to render durability and longivity. Measures are taken to prevent cracking and fading of paint, thereby creating only the most excellent exemplars of Indian handicraft. With a playful composition of branches and birds, the artisan lets his creativity loose onto the blank paper canvas. At Artystribe, we stumble across these rare masterpieces ― a single person's work and celebrate the spirit of handicraft.
