These handcrafted journals made from Lokta bushes, which grows on the southern slopes of the Nepali Himalayas between 5,250 and 13000 feet. When properly cut, the bushes can produce three to eight new, fast-growing shoots making Lokta paper one of the most renewable and eco-friendly non-tree papers. Being used anciently for sacred texts, Lokta paper has been a staple of Nepalese artisans for centuries. 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.
Due to the fact that the products are handmade from ecological materials we recommend that you wash the products with cold water and allow them to dry flat. All our products are crafted with a love for craft and tradition, which makes each thread truly unique. The products may differ slightly from the products on the product images with regard to color, size or pattern.
