Paradise Turtle Box - Assorted
Our Paradise Collection features vibrant papier mache boxes expertly crafted using traditional Indian techniques with intricately hand painted detail. Artisans soak recycled newspaper until it disintegrates, then mix it with cloth, rice or straw to form the pulp used to mold unique box designs. Intricately hand painted detail and bold color combinations are a rich expression of age-old Indian design motifs. Sustainable, eco friendly design honors the spirit of resourcefulness found within our artisan communities.

Got this for my granddaughter who loves turtles and treasure boxes. Got a black one but would have preferred a purple one since that is her favorite color (this week).
