What does it take to Make the World’s Most Special Handmade Paper?
Lokta paper follows a 1,000-year-old tradition in paper making.
Lokta bushes when cut, grow back quickly to their original height, making it a very sustainable source for non-tree paper-making.
3. Skill & Artisanship
Lokta paper is made by hand when the fibrous bark of the lokta bush is cooked into a mash and then spread by hand across boxed screens. The process causes the fibers to join together, forming the paper. Training and expertise are required to achieve consistency wether for handmade printer paper or for leather bound journals.
