The Rose, Black Backpack


“The rose's rarest essence lives in the thorns.” 


Brought from Samarkand to Kashmir by a Kashmiri Prince, the Persian art form of Paper Mache has evolved to new heights in Kashmir. Our artist Riyaz has extended this traditional paper mache work to this black backpack with these beautiful roses from the Chinar Valley of Kashmir calling out to you to surrender to their beauty.
