For over a thousand years handmade paper has been produced in the mountains of Nepal. The raw material used is the bark of the Daphne Cannabina, or Daphne Papyracea bush, locally known as 'Lokta'. The bark is gathered at high altitudes of 6500 to 9500 feet and carried down to villages where local paper makers clean it and turn it into this wonderful eco-friendly paper.
After harvesting the lokta bush naturally regenerates as the plant is always cut above the root, preserving the fragile forest ecology of Nepal.
