Following a handmade paper-making tradition of over 1,000 years, these Lokta paper all-occasion greeting cards are a special way to send a special message. The paper comes from Lokta bushes which grow in the Himalayan mountains of Nepal. This tree-free bush grows back quickly when cut, making it a sustainable source. The fibrous inner-bark is cooked into a mash and then spread by hand across boxed screens, forming the paper as it dries and hardens in the Himalayan sun. Often referred to as Nepali paper, Lokta paper is used for official government documents in Nepal. The paper has a unique texture with one side showing the intricate pattern from the screen used to create the paper, and the other side, the sun-kissed side has a more natural and varied texture. Great for thank you cards, wedding or party invitations, or a simple note between frineds. Thank you for supporting at thousand-year-old tradition of handmade papermaking in Nepal.
