hand-painted papier mâché lacquer box
Our beautiful papier mâché boxes are just so pretty. Fabulous gifts, useful to hold whatnots and dreams, these little boxes are perfect for young and old alike. Jewellery boxes, babies' teeth, lockets of hair - a whole raft of special and precious things can rest inside one of these perfect creations.
Made and painted mostly by Kashmiri men using natural materials such as recycled paper and hair brushes for painting, our boxes are a nod to the past when little was wasted and time allowed the gentle and slow creation of beauty.
