A green and sustainable Fine Art textured paper for unique prints!
Crafted in the Himalayas, the Nepal Lokta takes its name after its origins: a shrub of a small tree of Nepal whose bark is used to produce non standard papers.
Produced by hand by local people, Lokta paper is part of a trade fair.
Lokta paper comes from a shrub that grows in Nepal, high in the Eastern Himalayas: Daphne Daphne papyracea or Cannabina. The Lokta tree grows between 2000 and 3500 m, and has the particularity to fully regenerate within 5-8 years after cutting. The ecological balance is thus maintained while providing an economic activity for the people of Nepal mountains.
A unique texture
Warm and silky, the Nepal Lokta paper boasts an irregular and unique structure for each and every sheet. This explains that the paper weight might vary.
Its striking appearance, near the parchment, the images should be especially in need of texture. The Lokta is not cut on the edges: we then say that it is fringed on all four edges.
