Lokta paper is acid and lignin free and is made in Nepal using a traditional handmade method. When harvested, the Lokta bush regenerates within 5–7 years. The oldest available manuscripts of Hindu and Buddhist texts are written on Lokta paper. The contents of a Buddhist prayer wheel contain a tightly-wound scroll of Lokta paper upon which a mantra is written thousands of times. It is also used in traditional medicine as an antiseptic bandage.
