It is based primarily on paper pulp, and is a richly decorated, colorful artifact; generally in the form of vases, bowls, or cups (with and without metal rims), boxes, trays, bases of lamps, and many other small objects. These craftsmen used hand-made paper pulp from Iran, Central Asia. It is also said that the prince had been imprisoned in Samarkand in Central-Asia for many years. Earlier practice was to draw colorful paintings on wood on household furniture such as ceilings, bedsteads, doors and windows, palanquins and so forth. Internally this art form was called, kar-i-qulamdan as it was made as pen holders and a few other personal trinkets. To encourage this art form to proliferate, the Government of Kashmir has included papier-mâché as a curriculum subject in schools.

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.
