Brightly colored flowers make this bangle bracelet a veritable garden of delights. Lightweight construction, formed of a process of creating paper pulp, molding the pulp, then decorating, painting, and finally, lacquering the piece to a glossy shine. This cheerful piece is carefully handcrafted, so irregularities may be noted as no two are alike.

Papier Maché is a delicate decorative art which shows the artistic zeal of a craftsman. This art was introduced in Kashmir in the 15th Century by a Kashmiri Prince who spent years in prison at Samarkand in Central Asia. The art born in the land of Persia was highly favored by Mughal Emperors of 15th and 16th Century.
