A timeless organic notebook!

Available in four coulours and two sizes, these earthy notebooks have been crafted in Nepal using traditional lokta paper and handspun, handwoven Himalayan Hemp. The beautifully textured 40 pages are medium weight (average 20gsm) and covered in natural dyed hemp. The combination of natural fibre fabric and traditional paper gives these notebooks a timeless feel.

From harvesting the hemp through retting and handspinning to the completion of the fabric on a handloom is a very time consuming process and still carried out in the remote villages of the Himalayas in the same way as it has been done for centuries.

Lokta paper is the local name of the traditional paper made from the bark of 'Daphne Cannabina'. The bark is found at an altitude of between 2000m and 3500m. This indigenous handmade paper is renowned for its durability and is steeped in history. The oldest available buddhist manuscripts and royal documents are recorded on lokta paper. It is still made in the same way today.
