A truly beautiful Lotka paper which has been hand-crafted to make a thick and luxurious wrapping paper, a beautiful gift in itself!
Lokta paper-making is a traditional practice from the high altitude Himalayan forests of Nepal which involves layering the paper and leaving to dry in the sun before hand-printing the designs.
Made from the Lokta bush which is a fast growing and sustainable shrub whilst the paper making process helps to provide economic stability for some of Nepal's poorer rural people.
