Manufacturer & Exporter of Pashmina Shawls

Pashmina shawls, Kashmir silks, willow chairs, Crewel craft (unique embroidery on upholstery and drapery) home decor, papier mache decoratives and walnut furniture. All of this and more is on display and sale at the Jammu and Kashmir Emporium. Papier mache products include boxes in various colours and shapes, plates, bowls, and a range of decorative items for the table top, walls and windows. Kashmiri naqashi (painting) with natural vegetable and mineral dyes turn waste paper into rare pieces of art.

Who can resist the lacquered papier mache balls, bells, crescents and stars in vibrant colours? The small mattresses called namdas and gabbas (made by felting wool)and sporting chain stitch embroidery are a big attraction. Prices depend on size, design and the percentage of wool in the products.The shawls, silks and indeed the wood craft pieces need no marketing. If you are looking to add a Kashmiri touch to your home, go for the carpets – the more knots per square inch, the greater the value and durability.

While most shoppers are aware of these items, not many give the copperware a second look. Please do. You will find something that you can treasure for the rest of your life. The Samovar (tea-kettle of Russian origin), for instance,is an interesting piece on display.

This is one of the best shop for handicrafts in Delhi.
