"Those days were so much fun! On one side my father would be creating his magic on shawls, while us brothers would show our creativity through paper mache."

"I was born and brought up in Kashmir. As you know, Kashmir is known for its natural beauty and traditional crafts, so... it was indeed fun growing up there. My father was a traditional weaver and I remember he would make exquisite embroidered compositions on shawls.

"My older brother Iqbal was taught papier mache techniques by a highly-skilled craftsman by the name of Gulam and, as I watched him learn, I became interested too. Then I began to learn and, soon after, my younger siblings followed suit. Those days were so much fun! On one side, my father would be creating his magic on shawls, while we brothers would show our creativity through papier mache. My uncle Niyaz is also a featured artist specializing in paper mache.

"It is unfortunate that none of us inherited our dad's passion for weaving. My father is old now and he doesn't work anymore, but he is happy that we are enjoying our work. He always says, 'No matter what craft you chose, you should be happy doing it.'

"When I finished my 12th standard, I joined my brother in his work. After making the boxes we would sell them to tourists. Back then, Kashmir used to be flooded with tourists but these days, the situation doesn't allow too many visitors.

"We also started teaching young boys the art of papier mache. Between 1993 and 1994, we moved to Delhi to explore more opportunities. We started by participating in several government-sponsored exhibitions. People loved our work.

"We're always trying to bring something new to our art. Earlier, papier mache was mostly about scenic and animal themes. However, as per shoppers' demands, we are always doing something new. The Mughal-themed boxes that we create have been widely appreciated. They are our specialty.

"Iqbal was conferred the National Award in 2004, and I was also honored with two State Awards in 2004 and 2006. It's such a great feeling to be appreciated for your hard work. We were also chosen by the Craft Council of India to participate in an exhibition in Cuba. It was a wonderful experience!

"Being associated with you is a great experience. My craft will be exhibited for the world to see and appreciate!"

FINDING YOUR SIZE

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.

BUST / CHEST

Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.

WAIST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

LOW WAIST

Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.

HIPS

Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.

NECK

Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.

SLEEVE

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.

INSEAM

Our standard inseam length for women is 32" and 34" for men; however inseam measurements will vary slightly by style.

 

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt. Generally there are 5 holes for size adjustment, with a 1" space between each, so the middle hole will the be average size of the belt.

For at tie belt (no buckle) measure the belt portion end to end and half of the tie portion. This again is the medium size of the belt.

For a soft fabric tie belt it can be called "1 size fits most" and the entire length of the belt should be measured and listed.

Triple 'Win' Pricing

UNICEF Market offers triple win pricing, where YOU the consumer, Children from around the world, and Artisans all benefit.

WIN # 1 You Save!

Handmade goods from developing nations usually pass through a series of intermediaries before being purchased by retail consumers. Each of these intermediaries adds cost to the product, and that cost is passed on to the customer. UNICEF USA partnered with NOVICA, who works directly with artists through their regional offices in Asia, Africa and Latin America, allowing purchases from UNICEF Market to go directly from the artisans to fulfilling customer orders. By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.

WIN # 2 Children Benefit!

Each item purchased from UNICEF Market will benefit UNICEF's programs that provide lifesaving nutrition, medicine, education, clean water, emergency relief and more to children in need.

You can learn more about UNICEF's work, on About UNICEF.

WIN # 3 Artisans Profit!
