Natural Lokta Computer Paper (Saffron)

Handmade in the Himalayas
Handmade Natural Computer Paper
Vegetable-Dyed

The rich yellow color is derived Natural Saffron, a traditional dying process dating back centuries in the Himalayas. Deep saffron color is often associated with sacrifice and a “quest for light.”

Lokta paper uses fibers derived from lokta bushes that grow on the high slopes of the Himalayan mountains.

The bushes are not killed, but cut and grow back to full height in about 5 years. It’s a renewable, non-tree alternative, making it a special choice of Natural Printer Paper.
