Fair Trade Handmade Paper from Nepal

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,  Lokta 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. Today, this ancient technique is used for official government documents in Nepal. The paper is naturally insect free and will last more than 100 years. This paper is sourced directly from the paper producers in the Baglung area of Nepal and they are paid a fair living wage for their artwork.
