Papier Mache of West Bengal

Papier Mache of West Bengal


Although the craft of papier mache is not traditional to West Bengal, it has been nurtured over the recent years by the Santiniketan school of artists who have pioneered the craft and passed it on to many artisans. Many such artisans in and around Calcutta have taken up the craft as a serious occupation and their products --- mainly dolls and masks --- have found a market owing to their beautiful designs and excellent craftsmanship.
