Papier Mache factory visit


Historical narratives record that artisans from Bukhara and Samarqand were encouraged to settle in the valley in the 15th century by Emperor Zain ul Abidin. Papier mâché, one of the crafts patronized by the legendary ruler, remains the pride of Kashmir. A visit to a papier mâché factory with a local expert offers a fascinating insight into the exquisite craft that blends the art of working with paper and fine miniature painting.
