This is a tsasho paper from Nepal made in the same way as the Bhutanese tsasho and with a similar laid pattern imparted by the split bamboo mould.
The paper is made from the inner bark or bast fibre of lokta. Lokta is darker toned and has a harder surface than mitsumata. It is a native plant of the Himalayan foothills found above 3000 metres. Lokta is a sustainable and renewable resource. Plants are cropped above ground level and can be reharvested after 3-4 years.
For drawing in ink, calligraphy, printmaking and bookbinding.
You can buy just one sheet of any one paper but overall you must buy a minimum of 10 sheets selected from any of the papers in this category.
