Description

Vegetable-dyed lokta paper in a mustard color. A text weight paper, great for all forms of papercrafting including collage, book covers, art mattes and more.

Deep, rich earthtones are the allure of our dyed papers from Nepal. These papers are handmade from fiber of the "Nepal paper plant", called the Daphne shrub or Lokta bush. Growing around 6-9,000 feet up in the Himalayan region of Nepal, this bush completely regenerates in about 4 years after being cut to about 6" from the ground. The cultivation of this "tree free" paper is an eco friendly resource and a reliable revenue stream for the village artisans of Nepal's rural and urban areas.
