Kashmir Papier Maché
Kashmir paper mache (papier-mâché) is a handicraft of Kashmir that was brought by Muslims from Persia in the 15th century. Based primarily on paper pulp, these richly decorated, colourful artefacts are made in the form of vases, bowls, or cups (with and without metal rims), boxes, trays, bases of lamps, and many other small objects.
