The paper is sometimes called Nepali rice paper but it is actually Lotka bark handmade paper. Lotka refers to a small woody plant of the Laurel family which grows at over 6000 feet in the Himalayas, and has been traditionally used in Nepal to make paper. Lotka paper is a renewable resource, and provides a source of income to paper crafting families and village communities.
