Packaging: the packaging of this product is extremely beautiful and unique, it is presented in a sturdy tube that is closed at one end with a twist of handmade paper made from both recycled paper and Lokta bark. Lokta is a small woody bush which grows at over 6000 feet in the Himalayas, and has been used in Nepal to make paper (similar to parchment) over the last 2000 years or so. This type of paper making is an ancient art that has survived until today passed on from generation to generation of talented artisans in Nepal. Lokta paper is a renewable resource and provides a valuable source of income to paper making families and village communities.
