Naquashi is the traditional technique of surface decoration by painting over an object. It is believed that this art was introduced in Kashmir by a prince in early 15th century. He was intrigued by the art when he was captured in Samarkand (Central Asia). When he returned to Kashmir, he brought experts of this art from there and asked them to establish their art in Kashmir.
This product is handcrafted by national awardee artist Syed Azad Khan from Jammu & Kashmir.
