Lokta Paper - A Tradition of 1,000 Years

Handcrafted in the Himalayas and used anciently for sacred texts, Lokta paper has been a staple of Nepalese artisans for centuries. The paper is made from Lokta bushes which grow on the southern slopes of the Nepali Himalayas between 5,250 and 13,000 feet. When properly cut, the bushes produce three to eight new, fast-growing shoots making Lokta paper one of the most sought-after, renewable, non-tree papers.

Vegetable-Dyed, Nepali Eco Hard Cover Journal with Handmade Paper - Kathmandu Valley Co.

The Lokta Paper Tradition

Lokta Paper - A Unique Hand-made Process

Once harvested by hand, the fibrous inner Lokta bush bark is cooked into a mash and then spread by hand on boxed screens and set to dry in the Himalayan sun, creating a durable, fibrous paper.

Himalayan Sun-kissed Paper

The boxed screens create a beautiful and natural texture on the paper with one side screen-kissed and the other sun-kissed. This process creates one of the world’s most unique, acid-free papers.

Natural Flecks from the Outer Bark

The beautiful Lokta paper pages contains natural flecks from the bush and can vary slightly in thickness from page to page due to the unique handcrafting process.

Supporting Talented Artisans in Nepal

Deckle Edge Paper

The paper's antique-style deckled edges (similar to rough cut) are styled by hand and make a special journal even more unique.

Nepalese Artisans

This Himalayan handcrafted treasure supports the talented Nepalese artisans and preserves the thousand-year-old tradition of hand-made paper in Nepal.

Your Adventure Awaits

An adventure already begun in the Himalayas, this journal is a great note-taking companion at home, work, or for your adventures and journeys around the globe.

Vegetable Dyes used in Creation of the Journal Cover

Vegetable dye from black walnut husks is used to create the beautiful dark brown color in the journals.

Cutch wood resin is used to create the rich Terra Cotta color, creating a beautiful earthen red in the cover.

Dye from Pomegranate skins mixed with Indigo create the lovely sage green color on the cover.
