Kashmiri Wooden Tissue Paper / Napkin Holder 6 Inch
This handcrafted tissue paper / napkin holder is made from wood and paper pulp by the artisans from Kashmir. Paper mache was introduced to India in the 14th century by the Persian mystic Mir Syed Ali Hamdani. He was visiting the Kashmir region from Persia, and brought along skilled artisans and craftsmen. Over time, Kashmiri artisans added their own flourishes to the art form, bringing attention to their creations from all around the world. There are two important aspects of Kashmiri paper mache- Sakhtsazi and Naqashi. The first step, Sakhtsazi, involves making the foundation of the paper mache figurine or object with the paper pulp, while Naqashi is the final step of painting and decoration.
