In the heart of the Himalayas, Nepalese artisans combine a traditional process of ancient papermaking with modern fashion and style. The result is a high-quality paper product, prized for its superior strength, durability, and rich texture.
Handmade from the bark of the Daphne plant (locally known as "Lokta") by women’s cooperatives in Nepal, the colorful, silkscreened swatches in these paper packs are ideal for creative crafts, hobbies, art projects, and scrapbooking.
This natural product is 100% handmade using local raw materials, simple technology, and ancient skills.
Each package contains 12 sheets of paper in assorted designs.
Handling Charge — When ordering sheets of paper or board larger than 18” x 24” in quantities of less than 10, a $3.00 per order handling fee applies. Paper or boards may be assorted to reach the quantity of 10.

In the foothills of the Himalayas, the Daphne plant, locally known as "Lokta," grows in abundance at altitudes of more than 6,500 feet. Removing the bark from the Lokta actually promotes new growth and is beneficial to the plant. The controlled harvest of the Lokta ensures a sustainable, eco-friendly papermaking process.

I just really want to order LARGER sheets of some of these same papers. Beautiful stuff, I use it with my printmaking layered with inks, love it. Test first for bleeding of colors with water. So far, it's been ok, but I always check papers first.Can you guys get these sheet LARGER?
I will be purchasing this product again!
I decoupages bottles that came out so beautiful! Easy paper to work with. Gave a weathered look which I love.

I use these for mixed media painting projects. The texture and colors are beautiful and I like that they are handmade by female cooperatives in Nepal.
I purchased this paper for an art class next month, so I haven't use them yet. But I have removed them from the package and love the quality.
Chocolate Wrapping Paper
from North America
Wrapping paper was how I imagined it, still kind of over priced when shipping is factored in.
