Paper

Lokta paper is prepared from the fibrous bark of the Daphine Cannabina, or Lokta in the local language, which grows at high altitudes in the Himalayas. The bark is boiled and beaten with wooden mallets to produce a pulp which is poured into wooden frames and sun-dried. The resulting Lokta paper is strong and attractive and can then be dyed, stenciled, printed and transformed into a great variety of attractive paper products by craftsmen such as greeting cards, stationary sets, notebooks, gift-wrapping paper, photo albums, lamps.
