FAIR-TRADE and Handmade in Nepal by Tibetan Refugees using sustainably harvested Himalayan lokta paper.

Lokta paper, also known as Nepali kagaj or Nepali paper, is a wildcrafted, handmade artisan paper indigenous to Nepal. It is made from the bark of two of the species of the shrub Daphne. The paper was used historically in Nepal for religious scriptures and government documents.  Lokta paper is very durable and resistance to tearing, humidity, insects and mildew.

Handmade by skilled artisans working in a fair trade production center in Kathmandu, Nepal. The center produces sustainably. For example, excess water is drained into a neighboring garden for growing food.
