Experience the authentic Nepali Artisanship. 

The handmade Lokta paper is made from the fibrous inner bark of Daphne shrub that grows in the Himalayan forests between 5,000 and 13,000 feet altitude.

The cover of the journal is made of cardboard paper wrapped with various types of paper. These journals are a unique and great gift for any occasion.

Properties

The paper is durable, does not easily tear, and resistant to humidity, insects, and mildew. It is eco-friendly since it eliminates the use of trees for paper.

How is Lokta paper made?

Cutting from the shrubs is collected and the fibrous inner bark is pulled into strips, then cooked into a pulpy mesh. This mesh of fibers is spread by hand across large boxed screens and set to dry in the sun. The large sheet of paper is then cut into page size depending on its use.

Use

Lokta paper is widely used in journals and notebooks. It can also be used for sketching and artwork. Other uses include gift bags, envelopes, photo frames, wrapping paper, etc. It is still a preferred choice for the recordings of official government documents and sacred religious texts in Nepal.
