Nepalese Handmade Paper is handmade according to an ancient traditional process that has remained unchanged for more than 2000 years from the inner bark of the Daphne bush which protects the fragile ecological balance of Nepal's forest. Lokta grow/can be found in the high north eastern mountain regions of Nepal from 3500 to 4000 meters altitude. Lokta plant height could have about 3-6 feet. The plant has remarkable regenerative characteristics in every 3-4 years of quickly attaining full growth once it is cut. Thus Lokta production does not affect the fragile forest ecology of Nepal.

After removal cooked in a large vats soaking solution of hot water and soda for 2-3 hours until the solution achieves an even consistency, then it is washed by cold water, after washing it finely pulped by pending it with wooden mallets against stone.

Cotton mash wooden screens are used to collect a thin layer of pulp by sifting them through solution 4-5 times.







The screens are then placed in the sun drying until the layer of bark pulp has dried and the process is completed when a sheet of paper can be peeled from a screen.
