Christmas Arrives With Gift Of Employment For Artisans In Kashmir

When the world celebrates the festival of Christmas, Kashmiri artisans get busier than ever.

With rising demands for Christmas art hailing from the region, artisans began making many decorative items using locally produced Papier-mache. These are sold prior to the festival across the globe.

Award-winning Papier-mache artist Maqbool John has made thousands of such handmade products.

In a conversation with ANI, John opened up about how the festival entails employment opportunities for the Kashmiri craftsmen.

“We look forward to this festival all year round. Whenever this festival comes, we get busy preparing Christmas orders. This is our (artisans’) source of employment,” John said in a conversation with ANI.
