The Nepali Recorder Journal is the perfect blend of tradition and style.
A Thousand-Year-Old Tradition from Nepal
Handcrafted in the Himalayas and used anciently for sacred texts, lokta paper has been a staple of Nepalese artisans for centuries with the oldest known text on lokta paper still preserved after more than 1,000 years.
Hand-made Lokta Paper
The paper comes from lokta bushes which grow on the southern slopes of the Nepali Himalayas between 5,250 and 13,000 feet.
When properly cut, the bushes can produce three to eight new fast-growing shoots making Lokta paper one of the most sought after non-tree papers.
The Unique Feel of Lokta Paper
The paper is not treated with chemicals and is hand made in rural villages in the high altitudes of Nepal. The fibrous bark is “cooked” into a pulp that is hand applied to screens and sun dried curing into the pages used in this journal.
The imprint left from the screens can still be seen and adds a beautiful texture unique to the paper which contains natural flecks from the outer bark and can vary slightly in thickness from page to page due to the unique handcrafting process.
The paper is acid-free and is widely regarded as one of the world’s finest hand-made papers.
