ABOUT HANDMADE LOKTA PAPER PRODUCTS
This world renowned handmade paper is made according to traditional methods from the bark of the Danphe Bush. It is only found above 6,500 feet altitude of the Himalayan region in Nepal. The paper is a fine texture, strong and is able to be preserved for some centuries.
In the heart of the Himalayas, Nepalese artisans combine a traditional process of ancient papermaking with modern fashion and style. The result is a high-quality paper product, prized for its superior strength, durability, and rich texture. This natural product is 100% handmade using local raw materials, simple technology, and ancient skills.
For ages Lokta bark has been used for the purpose of making paper. To avoid destroying the main root, the plant is harvested by cutting it's stem at ground level. Lokta takes two to three years of time to regenerate naturally so there are no challenges on the Nepal's forest ecology.
First the bark of Lokta plant is cleaned and then cut into small pieces with a sharp knife. The pieces are soaked in water for about six hours. Then cooked in a soaking solution of hot water and soda for 1-2 hours and washed in cold water. The material is then hammered and converted into pulp. The pulp is poured into wooden frames for drying into sheets of paper.
