Products made from Tibetan paper become popular

Staff is making Tibetan paper. 

Tibetan paper was first invented in the mid-7th century. It is a cultural creation unique to Tibet. Princess Wencheng’s arrival in Tibet brought the papermaking technology to the region. Lacking materials such as bamboo and wheat used in inland China, Tibetan artisans explored alternative materials for years before finding ways to make the one of a kind Tibetan paper.

In recent years, the market for Tibetan paper greatly expanded. Small face masks, lucky decorative items, and other products made from Tibetan paper became popular with both local shoppers and international tourists.
