Handmade papers from Nepal made using the Japanese method of dipping and layering, which produces a more even sheet than the traditional Nepalese method. Made from lokta or mitsumata bark fibres (a renewable resource – plants are cropped, not destroyed, and are reharvested every three to four years). Unlike many other Nepalese papers, the bark fibres for these papers are separated using soda ash (not caustic soda), causing less damage to the fibres and resulting in a more durable sheet as well as having an improved environmental impact.
These papers are not sized but the fibre is naturally non-absorbent, making them good for pen and ink and various printmaking techniques.
