Christmas Tree Ornament: Papier Mache Bauble
Add a bit of sparkle and colour to your home with this hand-painted papier-mache bauble, decorated with a fabulous floral pattern and finished with a gold string with tassel.
Handcrafted papier-mâché made from recycled waste paper and skilfully painted by hand, the baubles are highly glossed and set hard.
The artisans that create these beautifully finished traditional craft items are in a workers cooperative, who currently provides work for 25 artisans and profits are split equally. They are free to choose their own working hours and some of the work is done at home to accommodate family responsibilities.
This hand painting of papier-mache is an ancient craft and we are pleased to be able to support it, particularly in the context of the economic deprivation that conflict has brought to Kashmir. The cooperative supports a number of charitable and community projects.
