This papier mâché bauble has been hand-made by artisans in Kashmir for Fair to Trade. The tradition of papier mâché in the region dates back to the 15th century when settlers from Persia brought the craft to the area. Fair to Trade ensure products are manufactured under conditions that meet recognised employment standards, including fair wages, providing clean and safe working environments, and providing skills training and promotion prospects.

Adapted from Birds and Mistletoe wallpaper by C.F.A. Voysey (1857–1941). England, early 20th century.

About the artist
about the artist

C.F.A. Voysey

Charles Voysey was an architect, textile and furniture designer, born in Yorkshire in 1857. Regarded as one of the finest architects of the Arts and Crafts movement, he was also an accomplished furniture designer, creating purposefully simple, restrained and elegant pieces. His interest in interiors lead to success as a designer of wallpaper, fabrics, tiles, ceramics and metalwork. Voysey’s textile work shows the influence of William Morris, with similar principles regarding repeating patterns, and the use of botanical and animal imagery. His dense yet simple representations of the organic went on to influence the Modernist movement, who were inspired by his eye for purity of line, and an open and unfussy style.
