Lokta Paper

Crafted in Nepal’s Kathmandu valleys, our Fair Trade lokta paper is made by artisans using the durable and evergreen lokta plant. Growing in abundance in the forests of Nepal and regenerating to a fully grown plant in just over five years, it has been used for Buddhist texts and legal documents for centuries. Depending on the individual design, the papers can be hand-dyed, dip-dyed or hand-screen printed.
