Lokta paper is made from the inner bark of the Daphne Bush, which grows high in the mountains of Nepal. After harvesting, the bark regenerates and no deforestation occurs. The resulting paper is thus environmentally sound, as well as acid free. In Nepal the traditional art of paper making has been handed down from generation to generation in a rural economy that is dependent on the craftsman's skill. The production of lokta contributes to an economic enterprise that helps to preserve a traditional way of life for forthcoming generations.
