These handmade paper and paper products are made according to traditional methods from the bark of the Daphne bush locally known as Lokta. This raw material is found in the hilly region from 3,000 feet to 10,500 feet. We believe that after cutting this Daphne bush, many new branches can easily sprout out from same roots which will be ready for next cut after 4-5 years. It grows in the shade of big plants in the forest of hilly region. Popular as the most exquisite and versatile papers, Lokta handmade paper has four deckled edges and is a very strong fiber which makes the paper very durable and can be store for centuries. Thats why these papers are being used in government offices for official purposes because the records can be kept safe for 100s of years. Its also insect proof.
