Kashmiri Heritage – Papier Mache, Handcrafted with Love

This sustainable handmade makeover of paper in Kashmir was instituted around the late 14th
and early 15th century. One of the great sultans of Kashmir, Zain-ul-Abidin, while he was still a
prince in captivity in the glorious city of Samarkand had observed the art of ornamentation of
smoothened surfaces that were made of waste paper pulp.
