In 1977, Antonio Dias traveled to Nepal with a group of artists, initially seeking handcrafted paper to print works on. He separated from the group and ended up in a community of manual paper producers, where he proceeded to live. Communicating in a rudimentary manner with the workers, he embarked on experiments in the preparation of the paper, mixing local ingredients, such as tea and spices, which were expensive articles for residents, but not for the artist; the result surprised them. It was out of this collective process that the paper works of Nepal emerged.
