Ganesh Journal

In the heart of the Himalayas, Nepalese artisans combine a traditional process of ancient paper making with modern fashion and style. The result is a high-quality paper product prized for its superior strength, durability, and rich texture.

In the foothills of the Himalayas, the Daphne plant, known locally as "Lokta," grows in abundance at altitudes over 6,500 feet. This Nepalese paper is made from the bark of the Lokta plant. Removing only the bark from the Lokta promotes new growth and is beneficial to the plant. The controlled harvest of the Lokta ensures a sustainable, eco-friendly paper-making process.

This natural product is 100% handmade using local raw materials, simple technology, and ancient skills. The products are made by women co-operatives and a small cottage industry in Nepal that employs mostly women.
