Natural Lokta Computer Paper (Indigo)

Handmade in the Himalayas
Handmade Natural Computer Paper
Vegetable-Dyed

Lokta paper is a tradition spanning a thousand years in the Himalayas. Fiber strippings are collected from the Lokta bush which grow on the Southern slopes of the Himalayan mountains in Nepal.

After being cut, the bush regrows quickly, making Lokta paper a sustainable, tree-free paper.

The strips of the inner bark are cooked into a fibrous mash which is then spread by hand over boxed screens. Set to dry in the sun, the fibers join together forming the paper.

Because of this unique process, one side of the lokta paper is smoother than the other and has a very fine pattern to it due to facing the screen side while the paper formed.

The other side is the sun-kissed side which did not form against the screen and thus has much more texture and personality.
