Ideal to hang over the Christmas tree, the decor can then be used to decorate your home forever in the most unique of ways.
Jan Paper Mache is one of the oldest Artisan communities of Kashmir, the initiative of which is taken by a mastercraftsman Ghulam Rasool Jan. Being in the art of Paper Mache since generations, Jan has traversed a long path from traditional to modern versions of the craft and crafted embossed elegies which make their presence known across museums across the country.
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.
