Elephant Ornaments in Pink or Black
The art of transforming paper pulp into intricately decorated pieces like these ornaments is a heritage craft of Kashmir and the tradition is passed down from generation to generation.
The recycled and repurposed paper used is lightweight and durable. The natural lacquer coat with exclusive hand painted Mela designs protects them from water and makes them durable for years to come.
Add with bows and ribbons as a part of your gift wrap, group in bowls or on tables, or add the final finishing trimming on your holiday scenes.
Due to their handcrafted nature, no two pieces will be identical and minor variations from the images will occur.
Wipe clean with a damp cloth.
