Craft -Peppier Mache
Peppier mache embroidery is a style of work carried out in the Jammu and Kashmir regions of the northwestern Indian subcontinent. It consists of a design of flowers and leaves that are worked in a satin stitch. The design is worked in bright colors and outlined in a black thread. This type of embroidery is used for the broad panels on shawls, as well as in more expensive forms for the complete shawl or stole. The Indian term peppier mache derives from the French term paper-mâché, which means 'chewed paper.'
