Lokta Handmade Art Paper

by Graeham Owens

This handmade heavyweight art paper is made in rural, mountainous villages in Nepal from the inner bark of the lokta bush. The paper has to travel for five days and five nights, on the backs of donkeys, to reach the nearest passable road. From this point it travels to Kathmandu and, then, the world.

Lokta is a renewable resource, as the bush regenerates from the same root system after being harvested. The paper is tree-free, acid-free and environmentally sound. It is widely regarded as one of the world’s finest papers.

The deckle edge paper is perfect for book binding, lampshades, gift wrapping, mattes for framing, and canvas for painting.

These handmade papers are huge and a delight to both the hands and the eyes. I ordered a green and a spice. The colors are vibrant and the textures luxurious.

Rated by: ann b. in st. louis,
This paper is just beautiful, rich and thick. I ordered the heavy weight and it is very thick, the brown is a gorgeous color, one side a little deeper than the other, which is nice for versatility.
