Nepalese Lokta paper is made by hand from the fibrous inner bark of Daphine bush or Lokta in the local language, which grows at high altitudes in the Himalayas. Lokta has the ability to regenerate within 5 to 7 years after harvesting. The bark is collected with environmental awareness and large scale “Lokta” resources remain untapped.

Lokta Paper is famous for its special texture, durability and resistance to tearing, humidity and insets. The oldest available manuscripts of Buddhist text & legal information were recorded on this paper. Today still the Nepalese government print official documents on lokta.

Strong & lightweight, this specialist paper can then be dyed, stencilled, printed and transformed into a great variety of attractive paper products by craftsmen such as greeting cards, stationery sets, notebooks, gift-wrapping paper, photo albums, lamps. Lokta paper is acid-free and is widely regarded as one of the world's finest handmade papers.

I offer a 4 or 10 sheet pack. My botanical lino print kit has this paper included as standard.

Customer review...

Five stars for this shop! I had an idea to make linocut camp t-shirts this summer but wasn’t sure where to start. Catherine answered a ton of my questions and made sure I had everything I needed - including ink for printing on fabric. The kit arrived within a week and everything was beautifully packaged, the materials are great & the instructions were very helpful. I would highly recommend this shop for anyone who wants to give this medium a try!
