• Ambient tone is the reason
Kashmir is a fascinating valley in northern India, from the Himalayas to the Pir Panjal Mountains. With the buzz of the river, the enchanting waters, the tranquil lakes and the lush gardens, this land can be called God's own garden.
There are many places in Kashmir, the global trotters can be found in the serene and mysterious valleys of the magnetized, grassy, pine, fruit and very obvious snow in the form of the depth of nature!
Jammu and Kashmir offer a wealth of handicrafts and hand-woven textiles. Kashmiri craftsmen are notorious for making exotic products such as pulp, wool shrugs and sweaters, Mogiris and more. These rare handicrafts and merchandise are usually produced by “Kutir Udyog” or “Cottage Industry” and are known around the world. Some of the famous indigenous products are paper scimitars and other exquisite designs, handlooms and handicraft products that require the attention of every visitor from all over the world.
Another striking fact is that these exclusive products of Jammu and Kashmir play a key role in generating large amounts of income from state governments outside the tourism industry.
You can call this land the perfect stage for Shopaholics, like some of the finest markets for Kashmir candles, which are the privilege of rare accessories and goods. So, does it have to be accessed?

For shoppers, the biggest indulgences are Vir Marg, Raghunath Bazaar and Hari Market, which are highly regarded for their rare Kashmiri handicrafts, traditional Dongra jewellery and dried fruit.

wait! Let's take a look at the facts of Paper Mache, these products are really fascinating products, but also describe the bold sigh.
Praise the Kashmiri process and recycle the waste paper into beautiful artifacts drawn by versatile craftsmen. Craftsmen usually follow their genetic business practices.
The princes of Kashmir began in the 15th century and these wonderful skills peaked in the Mughal era. The exquisite design of the paper product is an attractive hand-painted pattern that illuminates the shiny varnish. This is not only a way of their livelihood, but also a long and rich tradition of Kashmir, showing the strong enthusiasm of craftsmen.
Since most of the rulers of the Mughal dynasty are nature lovers, the patterns on paper products are mostly natural, such as blooming flowers, bright sunlight and so on.
These designs, through research and free hand-drawing, give new dimensions to the aesthetics of the final product. The paint used in the production process has a huge metal quality that enhances the sense of illumination.
How can we forget Pashmina products!

Add your facts list; Pashmina and Cashmere are extracted from "Goat hircus" or goats.
Who is an artist?
We need to speak traditional. Well, the traditional craftsman of Pashmina Wool in Ladakh, India is a tribe familiar with Changpa.
