In the heart of the Himalayas, Nepalese artisans combine a traditional process of ancient paper making with modern fashion and style. The result is a high quality paper product prized for its superior strength, durability and rich texture.
This Nepalese paper is made from the bark of the Lokta plant that is found in the foothills of the Himalayas. The Daphne plant locally known as "Lokta" grows in abundance at altitudes over 6500 feet. Removing only the bark from the Lokta actually promotes new growth and is beneficial to the plant. The controlled harvest of the Lokta ensures a sustainable and eco-friendly paper making process.
This natural product is 100% handmade using local raw material, simple technology and ancient skills. These products are made by women co-operatives and small cottage industry in Nepal which employs mostly women.
