Handmade Lokta Wrapping Paper
Handmade in the Himalayas
Wrap your Gift in Something Truly Special
Handmade Lokta Wrapping Paper feels like no other paper. It’s soft, yet sturdy and makes a gift truly unique.
Following a 1,000-year-old tradition in paper making in Nepal, our natural Lokta Paper is the perfect alternative to regular tree-based wrapping paper.
Cuttings from the lokta bush are cooked into a pulpy mash and then spread by hand over boxed screens and set to dry in the Himalayan sun, forming one of the world’s finest tree-free papers.
A product of bushes (not trees) that grow natively in the Himalayas of Nepal.
Lokta Wrapping Paper is tough and can easily be reused.
Lokta bushes regrow quickly after being cut, regaining full height in 5-7 years.
Tough Yet Soft Handmade Paper
Handmade Gift Wrap Like No Other
Lokta paper has a unique feel to it sometimes compared to a fabric-like paper. The gift wrap measures 20 x 30 inches and comes in packs of 10 sheets.
Using Lokta paper is like stepping back in time and handling an important document. The paper is also great for crafts, hobbies, special occasions as well as for use in scrapbooking and origami.
Pack of 10 Sheets
10 Sheets come rolled in each pack.
Measures 20 x 30 Inches
Each individual sheet measures 20 x 30 inches.
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.
One side of the paper 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, and is the “sun-kissed” side.
Reusable Wrapping Paper
Lokta paper is tough and can easily be reused. In fact, many gift recipients choose to save this special wrapping for crafts or future wrapping projects.
The paper is available with azo-free prints and solid colors as well as vegetable (plant-based) dyes.
