"I was born [...] in the Kashmir valley, where the tradition of carpet weaving and chain stitching is as old as the land itself."
"I was born in August, 1967, in the Kashmir valley, where the tradition of carpet weaving and chain stitching is as old as the land itself. Hailing from a family of Srinagar, I learned the art in my childhood, but it is for the last 12 years or so that I started off as an independent entrepreneur.
"For chain stitching of carpets we use a hassle cotton base, sketch out the design or impress it with a wooden die prepared by our master designer. Then, four artisans begin chain-stitching with pure wool from four sides giving rise to a well-prepared structure. It takes around 8-10 days to make a rug, and together with our master craftsman in Srinagar, I do most of the designs.
"The demand for chain-stitched rugs has increased, however, most people have been mistakenly led to believe that such sophisticated products are woven on a machine and they are thus hesitant to purchase.
"I have not only taught this art to many people but also helped them in developing their own self-sufficient units. I have participated in several fairs in India and abroad - Singapore, for example - having received an award.
"I would certainly want this art to continue in our family, and my immediate business plans are to give a worldwide exposure to our rugs. In this direction, our association with Novica will prove very fruitful. I believe our products will gain good acceptance amidst the valued customers of Novica."
Syed Izaz Hussein also demonstrates superior skill in the realm of papier maché, and his workshop offers beautiful, intricate works crafted in this method. Some 700 years ago Shah Hamadan, the Persian Sufia, came to Kashmir via the Silk Route and introduced the art of papier maché. Since that time, generations of Hussein's family have perpetuated the craft. Hussein even holds a copyright in certain teal-colored designs and patterns which he incorporates into select papier maché works.
Mr. Hussein: Thank you so much for the beautifull carpets I just received. They are more beautiful than I could have possibly imagined. Also thank you very much for the lovely box and specially for the post card. I am presently looking for someone to help me translate your postcard. I look forward to seeing more of your wonderful work in the future. Thanks again and lots of luck Jose L. Mendez
I bought a selection of Mr. Hussein's papier mache hearts and was very pleased with them. The patterns were lovely and the colors vibrant and clear. These will make lovely Christmas tree ornaments or decorations for other uses. I also liked the handcarved letter opener that came as a bonus with my package!
