Lokta paper is made entirely by a local women's co-operative community in Kathmandu involved in the ecological treatment and preservation of the forest. This form of paper production is both sustainable and eco-friendly, as the harvesting of lokta bark, the primary ingredient of the process, does not effect growth or survival of the tree. It is one of the strongest papers available and is not affected by insects or weather. Lokta papers are believed to be used many centuries ago. Documents and texts written on these papers are still found in Nepal that are centuries old.
Each sheet sold individually, measuring approximately 28 inches x 18 inches. Handmade in Nepal.
