Handmade Lokta Printer Paper (Sarne)

100% Lokta Paper for Printing & Crafts

Lokta paper is one of the world’s most unique papers. Tree-free, and made by hand, Lokta paper supports a 1,000-year-old tradition of paper making in Nepal.

The paper comes from the Lokta bush which grows on the southern slopes of the Himalayan mountains in Nepal.

Cuttings from the bush do not destroy it, and the bush can grow back to full height in 5-7 years making it a sustainable resource for paper making.

This process also supports the economic growth of small villages that reside in the mountains of Nepal.

The sheets are immersed in the natural dye and the set to air dry against metal sheets. This process naturally produces a dark side and a light side to each sheet. Due to the handmade process and natural coloring, the paper color can vary slightly from batch to batch and season to season.
