Nepalese Papers

The Nepalese have been making papers by hand for hundreds of years using a variation of the original Chinese method as it spread throughout the east and up through India. All these papers are made from Lotha fibres (similar to Mulberry) and sometimes contain visible flecks of Lotha bark. With the exception of the ‘Washi’ group, most of the remainder are made on the mould and couched onto sheets of tin. Note: Sold only in packs of 25.Nepalese papers – handmade rice
