For 1500 years this handmade paper has been produced in the mountain villages of Nepal. These beautiful papers support not only the ecology of the area but also the village economies. The bark is stripped by hand from Lokta trees growing at an altitude of 2000 meters. The paper is made with an ecological awareness to preserve the fragile ecology of the forests. All processed and made by hand on wooden deckles, this paper is an entirely natural product you will almost certainly find irregularities and flaws which only add to the charm of the paper itself. Lokta is acid and lignin free archival quality paper.
