Participate in a 1,000-year-old tradition in paper making with our Extra-thick Natural Lokta Card Stock Paper. Tree-free lokta paper is the perfect alternative to modern-processed papers.
Lokta paper is made by spreading pulp fibers from the Lokta bush over boxed screens and setting them to dry in the Himalayan sun.
No dyes or bleaches are used, presenting the paper in its natural, beautiful form.
Great For Printed Invitations & Craft Projects
5×7 Inch Handmade Cardstock Paper Like No Other
Lokta paper has a unique feel to it sometimes compared to a fabric-like paper.
Our card stock lokta is approximately twice the thickness of our standard lokta paper, making it great for special art projects, invitations, or priting projects.
For handwritten projects, the fibrous nature does allow for some feathering and ghosting if writing with pens with heavy ink.
The paper works well with traditional laser printers and measures 5×7 inches. Due to the unique nature of the paper, we recommend loading sheets individually.
Printing or crafting with Lokta paper is almost like stepping back in time and handling an important document.
The paper is available in packs of 25, 50, or 100 sheets.
Lokta Paper has a natural texture to it due to the hand-crafting process. Flecks from the outer bark can be seen in the paper making each page unique and special and giving it that antique paper look and feel.
Two different sides exist for each page. One side is relatively smooth where the paper formed against the boxed screen. You can even see the tiny crisscross pattern created by the screen. The reverse side has a natural texture to it, called the “sun-kissed” side.
