Welcome to the art of Paper Mache or Papier Mache. An ancient art
that is still alive today. Paper Mache as we know it is a simple
yet sophisticated craft. In the little village of Mahawara, Kashmir
India recycled newspapers are used to create these beautiful Paper
Mache Christmas Ornaments and crafts. Each item is hand painted
thus one of a kind. We at Holy Land Imports are proud to
introduce our new line of Mahawara Krafts. We are working
hand in hand with our artists in Kashmir to make sure you receive
the superior quality you are accustomed to.

This simple yet sophisticated craft is made from recycled newspapers in little village of Budgum , Kashmir India. Using simple tools and techniques these crafts are created. The process of making paper Mâché 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 detailed images.
