A 1,000-year-old Handmade Tradition

Nature’s Renewable Paper

A tradition of over 1,000 years in Nepal, our 100% Lokta paper is not treated with bleach like other papers and is hand made in rural, high altitude villages of Nepal.

The fibrous inner bark of the lokta bush is “cooked” into a pulp then spread on screens and sun-dried in the Himalayas. The beautiful texture from the process is characteristic of hand crafted lokta paper.

Lokta paper has a beautiful texture containing natural flecks from the bush and can vary slightly in thickness from page to page due to the unique handcrafting process.

Because the lokta bushes are not destroyed when cut, they grow back quickly, making them a sustainable and renewable paper source.
