A natural, eco-friendly and exquisite handmade wrapping paper
The receiver will be overjoyed to be given a present wrapped in this colourful, screen printed paper. It is fully recyclable and possibly can be reused if carefully wrapped with Washi or paper tape.
Lokta is an indigenous plant from Nepal, harvested kindly so it does not disturb the forest ecology. The paper making process begins by cleaning the bark with a sharp knife and chopping it into small pieces.These are soaked in water for 5-6 hours, then a hot water and soda solution for 1-2 hours. After washing with cold water, it is hammered into a pulp. The pulp is poured into wooden frames which are lifted and tilted to the sun to dry as sheets. The Lokta paper can be preserved for a long time and is bug-resistant. Any scraps are recycled again.
The Nepalese people are very proud of their traditional centuries’ old method of Lokta handmade paper-making and the fact that their business is helping to develop Nepal and its people.
Sheet dimensions: 75cm x 50cm approx.
The paper will be folded.
Don't forget your gift tags, twine and ribbon for the finishing touches.
