This simple yet sophisticated Paper Mache Christmas crafts are made from recycled newspapers in little village of Mahawara, Kashmir India. Using simple tools and techniques these Papier Mache crafts are created.The process of making paper mache is tedious and time consuming.
Recycled newspapers are soaked in large barrels with water and rice starch. After 21 days the papers would have decomposed, then they are molded in balls and other shapes and left to dry further. Once completely dried they are individually hand-painted with our own private designs.
