Lokta Paper is a traditional Nepali craft going back thousands of years and is made from the Lokta or Daphne Bush, a wild shrub that grows wild in the Himalaya at altitudes of 5,000 – 13,000 ft where little else grows. It produces a fine-textured paper that is valued for it’s strength, durability and resistance to being eaten by insects. In fact, historically Royal Decrees and Religious Texts were written on Lokta Paper and is said to last for over 1,000 years!
Note: Since Mithila Art is a handmade art, no two products are exactly the same, regardless of the fact that they’re made using the same process. These product variants define the different types of designs in Mithila Art.
