More about our Handmade Paper
We sell handmade Lokta paper from Nepal, in two types of sheets –
1. smooth-finished, calendared computer paper suitable for inkjet printers, in A4 or A3-size but also in (SR)A2,
2. large sheets of un-calendared, deckle-edged, Double Crown-size poster paper. These sheets are an ideal size to use for wrapping presents, and for decorative paper crafts, including card making, and for art and craft work.
Our handmade paper is made from the bark of the Lokta bush. The printer paper is a smooth-finished, calendared A4 or A3 paper with machine-cut edges, suitable for use in inkjet and laser printers. It is a fine, lightweight paper at 50-60 gsm that feeds readily through your printer, doesn’t requires adjustment of your printer settings and takes ink or toner well.
You can also buy lokta papers in Double Crown-size sheets (75 cm by 50 cm);
- Buy a wide range of handmade lokta wrapping papers for special presents
- Buy handmade Artists papers for arts and craft use (or use them as wrapping papers).
Note on handmade paper colours
Note that all of of our papers are handmade and hand-dyed. The patterns and colours may therefore differ from the photographs and between and within batches. This is a feature of real handmade papers.
