Nepali handmade paper is crafted in the traditional way from the bark of Daphne Cannabina, commonly known as LOKTA among Nepalese, an under-storey shrub which grows in the middle mountains of Nepal. Handmade Lokta paper crafting is an ancient art that has remained unchanged for over 2000 years. Handmade Lokta paper is acid free and environmental friendly. It is extremely durable and that is one reason why government offices in Nepal are still using them for all the official documentations.
Our Crafting families has been using these beautiful handmade papers for picture framing, lampshades, art supplies, book making, displays, wall paper and many other wonderful and greeting purposes.
