A hand-written card is the epitome of style.
Gold ink shimmers against the sophisticated colors of our Kagzi Handmade Paper Cards by Bombay Paper. The intricate Paisley pattern gives these cards a special South Asian touch, while the eco-friendly handmade paper base provides a meaningful story that you can take pride in when giving this card to a loved one.
Kagzi work is a centuries-old, traditional handmade paper technique that combines natural materials such as wildflowers, leaves, jute, silk threads, paper tree bark, grass, and straw. The craft process is time-consuming, resulting in unique textures, uncommon colors, and a natural feel. This art dates back to the 3rd century B.C. and has been passed down within the families of India's traditional papermakers.
Each card is blank inside so you can use them for a variety of purposes, including thank you notes, congratulatory messages, holiday wishes, and more. The set of 5 cards includes 5 plain vanilla envelopes and 5 special stickers with which to seal the envelopes - each sticker includes a short description of the Kagzi craft so your loved ones can learn about and appreciate this meaningful artisan technique too.
Your purchase supports preservation efforts of this disappearing art form, and a portion of the proceeds also funds education initiatives in Mumbai, where these beautiful cards are made.
