They are made with care by local artisans , people who learn their trade not in schools, but from the older master who hands down his craft to the next generation. These papers need time, skill and a lot of love to be made, as the artisans do everything by hand. From harvesting the plants the right season, to making of the pulp (a natural process which can last up to 3 months), press the paper sheets, one by one and let them dry natural in the sun for months. All these papers need a natural environment to be made, far away from the modern civilization and its pollution. *š€š›šØš®š­ š­š”šž šœšØšÆšžš«š¬: - Nepalese Lokta paper: Lokta paper has been used in Nepal since the 12th century, when it was used to write epic tales, to print mantra for use in prayer wheels, and for religious texts chanted by Buddhist monks. Until 1959, Nepal used this paper for all official government correspondence, and even today it is used for all of their land ownership papers (lal purja) and legal documents. Nepalese Lokta Paper is and eco-friendly paper hand-made from the fiber of the "Nepal Paper Plant," also called the Daphne Shrub or Lokta Bush. The cultivation of this "tree free" paper is an eco-friendly resource and a reliable revenue stream for the village artisans of Nepal's rural and urban areas. The Lokta bush completely regenerates in about 4 to 6 years after being cut to about 6" from the ground. - Khadi paper: It is a 100% cotton paper made by hand in the village of Tarihal near Hubli, in Karnataka, South India. Khadi rag papers are made from 100% cotton rag, which have longer fibers than linters that are generally used in papermaking. These genuine rag papers are known for their exceptional strength and durability. š€š›šØš®š­ šˆš§š§šžš« šššš šžš¬: It has 62 pages of top quality professional 50% Cotton Fabriano paper of 300 gsm (140 lbs), an Italian paper manufacturer with a long story in fine-arts papers.
