Daphne shrub paper for centuries has been used for manuscripts and traditional medicine. These handmade paper products are made from the bark of the Daphne shrub, which grows in the mountains of Nepal. Known locally as Lokta, the scrub grows at an altitude of 6,500 to 9,500 feet. The Lokta scrub regenerates after cutting, thus preserving the fragile forest ecology of Nepal. It has exceptional strength with very appealing texture and it is one of the most eco-friendly paper in the world.
