Nepalese Lokta Paper is handmade by local families in Nepal and is fairtrade classified. It is an eco friendly paper made from the fibrous bark of the Daphne Shrub or Lokta Bush. After harvesting, the plant completely regenerates to full maturity again within 4-5 years. If left to grow past maturity the Lokta Plant will not have any new growth, therefore, the harvesting process helps the forest continue to grow.
