Junghsi Paper, Desho Paper Gift Bag
This organic bleached paper bag made from the Jungshi Paper Factory. The factory uses the bark of two tree species, the Daphne tree and Dhekap tree in the manufacture of traditional paper, or Desho. Desho paper was originally used by monasteries for woodblock and manuscript books and also for writing prayer books.
The Jungshi paper factory continues to preserve and promote this age-old Bhutanese tradition. It also produces various other products, such as stationery and greeting cards.
