Lokta paper is made from the renewable bark of the Lokta bush, which is hand harvested in Nepal from the high Himalayas where Lokta bushes grow naturally.

How It's Made

Once harvested, the fibers from the lokta bush are cooked into a mash, spread by hand across large boxed drying screens, and set to dry in the Himalayan sunshine.

Once dry, the large sheet of lokta paper is then cut into journal sized pages and handbound into a completely unique journal.

Creating Lokta Paper is an art, and in purchasing this journal, you are helping to preserve one of the oldest Nepalese traditions and creating employment opportunities across Nepal!
