Papier Mache

This intricately painted set of bowls has a rich history behind its making, starting with hours spent in the hands of Kashmir's finest artisans. After making its mark in the global economy, Papier Mache has been facing resistance with the onset of modern times. One cannot overlook the delicate brush strokes rendered by the artisan until the final product is a timeless classic. The craftsmen adopt the 'Shirka' style of painting onto the hardened paper surface. With a single-tone colour palette, the artisan carefully renders the outside and the inside of the bowl in peachy pink shades.
