Abstract: Non-timber forest products (NTFPs) in recent years have been attracting attention of institutions and industries concerned with natural products development. In this context, traditional knowledge and practices are important in prudent resource use and biodiversity conservation. Currently, wood is by far the major raw material for the global pulp and paper industry and non-wood fibres are a minor part of raw material supply. China and India are leaders in the utilization of non-woods for paper making. Daphne papyracea Wall. ex Steud., locally called as ‘Shuksheng’ is a NTFP which is traditionally used as paper making material by Monpas tribe of West Kameng and Tawang districts of Arunachal Pradesh. The traditional paper making technique of this tribes is described in this paper.
