It sometimes happens that a Pashmina shawl is covered in large motifs with wide spaces to be filled with embroidery, for example, a flower petal, a leaf, a full paisley, and more. In such embroidery patterns, filling a larger space would be cumbersome and time consuming if done with a delicate, fine thread. And here is when an artisan brings Papier Mache embroidery into play.
What is Papier Mache: As the name suggests, the embroidery derives its nomenclature from the ancient art of Papier Mache (where waste paper is transformed to breathtakingly beautiful hand painted articles) because of the similarity of their looks. And as the reflection of one beautiful craft reflects over the other, the embroidery looks absolutely magnificent over a Pashmina shawl.
While embroidering a Pashmina shawl in Papier Mache embroidery, there are a few steps to be followed:
Choosing a block for design: A finely carved walnut wood block acts as a stamp, to lay the base for the design over the shawl. Blocks are different for the borders and centre of a shawl. It takes a lot of time to choose from among a hundred such blocks that have been carved by master walnut woodcarvers.
Stamping the shawl: An expert craftsman carefully places the chosen block dipped in ink over the shawl at the desired place.
Embroidering the shawl: This imprinted shawl is sent to embroidery experts, who choose multicoloured satin threads for a brighter effect. When a motif is completed, it is outlined with another thread so as to make it appear more prominent.
