An earthy and timeless paper.

This paper is made in Nepal from the fibrous inner bark of Daphne Cannabina Papracea, locally known as "lokta". This paper is great for many different craft applications or simply as an organic writing paper. At 20gsm, the A4 sheets can easily be loaded into most printers.

Lokta is an evergreen shrub found between the altitudes of 1600m to 4000m on the southern slopes of the Himalayas. This indigenous handmade paper is renowned for its special texture, exceptional durability and its resistance to tearing, humidity, insects and mildew. The oldest available manuscripts of buddhist texts, royal edicts and legal documents are recorded on lokta paper.

HOW IT'S MADE
The paper making process involves cooking the bark, washing, chopping and beating with a wooden hammer. The soft pulp is blended with water and then poured over a wooden framed fine mesh and spread evenly by gently shaking the floating frame in water before being sun dried.
