Papier 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, Papier Mache took its roots in the simple homes and thus— a new art form was born. Papier Mache became the folk art of Kashmir; passing down from father to son, from generation to generation. Papier 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.
