ABOUT THE ARTISANS
In the heart of the Himalayas, Nepali craftspeople have been producing handmade paper for over a thousand years. Prized for its durability, soft texture, and natural color, this paper is an environmentally friendly, tree-free paper made from the bark of the regenerating Daphne bush.
Originally used in Tibetan monasteries for sacred texts, the making of Lokta paper is a village tradition dating back thousands of years. The paper is naturally insect free and will last more than 100 years.
