A souvenir of the traditional Kangri which has long been used in Kashmiri homes to keep away the biting winter cold, handcrafted is a beautiful decorative kangri in the elaborate craft of Papier Mache. Paper Mache artisans breath a new life into the otherwise plain brass using the ever so Chinar design. The Chinar makes a heritage motif of the Valley, its roots firmly entrenched into the Kashmiri soil. This design is captured an art form using a special type of brush made out of cat tail. This brush enables the artisan to craft the most intricate of patterns over his masterpiece. This particular kangri is painted golden and features the floral life of Kashmir at its finest. Use it as a piece of classic decor and let it inspire a classy statement for your abode.
Baba Art and Crafts are the unsung heroes of Kashmiri Papier Mache who strive to restore the pristine art form to its original glory. The brand works with moulders and Naqash (fashioners) from across the Shehr-e-Khaas to create embossed and intricate pieces of decor, storage and more.
Paper Mache is a delicate decorative art, born in Persia and brought to Kashmir by a Prince who spent years in a prison at Samarkand in Central Asia. The surroundings harnessed the creativity and romance for this art and finally Paper Mache took its roots in the simple homes and thus— a new art form was born. Paper Mache became the folk art of Kashmir; passing down from father to son, from generation to generation. Paper Mache involves two main steps: ‘Sakhtsazi’ is the actual production of the item and ‘Naqashi’ is when the item is painted with any number of motifs.
