Lokta or handmade Nepali paper is made from the fiber of a native plant. It is renowned for its rough but attractive texture, durability, strength and resistance to insects. Lokta derives its name from one of the local plant species (Daphne Papyracea or Daphne Cannabina) from which it is made. These plants are also known as Baruwa or Kaagte Paat. They are generally small and woody and grow as shrubs reaching a maximum height of 7 feet.
