Please note – this paper will be delivered folded loosely in an envelope, the creases do come out very easily and won’t show once wrapped.
This is a truly natural, handmade product so colours may vary slightly.
Lokta paper is handmade 3000 metres above sea level in the Himalayas, Nepal where skill and craftsmanship creates extra special gift wrapping that is 100% natural and biodegradable! Naturally dyed using water based ink and AZO free dyes, this wild-crafted Lokta paper is biodegradable and fully recyclable.
Lokta paper is handmade using the bark of the Lokta shrub which is an ingenious plant to the Himalayas. The bark naturally sheds and grows back, the shrub does not need to be cut down or damaged in anyway to make this beautiful paper, the plant continues to grow meaning this is a very sustainable ad eco-friendly alternative to mass produced wrapping paper.
This paper is not only sustainable and natural, but also fair-trade and ethically made in Nepal by local artisans, supporting skilled craftsmen and women.
Our Lokta paper is an artisan wrapping paper which has not been cut, they have been naturally finished which saves unnecessary waste and shows the true natural and organic nature of this paper. I always fold the edges when wrapping but to give a more unique and rustique look you can leave the edges on show.
This handmade Lokta paper is completely plastic free. The paper itself can be recycled or put in your compost to biodegrade.
