*The "lokta" paper
Lokta paper is a paper made in the traditional way in Nepal. It was originally intended for the writings of Buddhist monks.
It is made from the bark of a bush, the daphne, from which a paper pulp is made. The leaves are dried on wooden frames in the wind of the hills.
This paper was originally a natural beige/grey colour. Nowadays, it is sometimes dyed (e.g. the cover of the notebook). The contemporary handicraft production follows the traditional production processes and bears witness to an ancient know-how.
Beyond its function as a handmade travel and writing or sketching book, it is a beautiful object to which you will become attached.
With its refined cover and variety of papers, it is also a very good idea for a stylish gift to someone special.
