Papermaking is considered one of the most important parts of Bhutanese culture and tradition.

Jungshi Handmade Paper Factory in Namtag Lam, about 1km away from the Thimphu City, is a pilot conservative program to preserve their traditional handmade papermaking by Bhutan's Ministry of Trade and Industry.

The term Jungshi, as explained by Mr Norbu Tenzin, means Natural in Dzongkha. To produce the paper, Mr Norbu Tenzin needs to harvest the bark of either Daphne tree or the Dhekap tree and natural water from the mountains. All these materials are sourced locally in the restricted area regulated by the Forestry Department.
