Our new supplier of these beautifully finished traditional crafts is a workers cooperative. They currently provide 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. The paper mache is made from recycled waste paper. This hand painting of papier mache is an ancient craft and Namaste 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.
