About the art:

It is a material made of pulped or pasted paper, along with other fibrous materials. The fibers are often softened by boiling in water. Then, the fibers are squeezed dry so they become easier to work with. Fillers and binders are then added. After this, the material is either air-dried or baked into flat sheets or cast in shaped moulds that are made from either hard clay or wood. 

Paper mache is a delicate decorative art which shows the artistic zeal of a craftsman. This art was introduced in Kashmir in the 15th Century by a Kashmiri Prince who spent years in prison at Samarkand in Central Asia. The art born in the land of Persia was highly favored by Mughal Emperors of 15th and 16th Century.

The ingenious paper mache artisans of Kashmir transform a variety of utility articles into beautiful works of art. Consuming a lot of hard work and time, the process of making paper mache items, which is passed down by generation to generation as a part of Kashmiri culture, involves two mains steps, ‘Sakhtsazi’ , or the actual production of the item, and ‘Naqashi’, when the item is painted with any number of motifs.
