A set of 4 hand painted baubles, crafted from start to finish by artisans at a fair trade cooperative in India. Firstly, a papier mache base is formed, and then painted with flamboyant layers of florals and leaves with a fine tipped brush. Lacquerware of this type is a traditional skill in Kashmir, and the layer of glossy lacquer results in a smooth and shiny surface that’s robust, waterproof, and wonderfully tactile.

Hang these handmade baubles on your Christmas tree or anywhere you feel the creative urge. Suspend them on long threads from a curtain rail for a contemporary Christmas look you can appreciate from inside or outside!
