Lokta paper can be traced back to the 12th century in Nepal, when it was used for religious texts and government documents. Its durability and resistance to tearing, insects, moisture, and mildew made it perfect for important documents then, just as it does now. Since the Lokta bush is a naturally regenerating plant when harvested correctly, these products are eco-friendly and sustainable.
The paper in this notebook was handcrafted by a number of skilled women artisans in Janakpur, Nepal and is waiting for you to fill it full of thoughts, experiences, recipes, sketches, or brilliant ideas. Both the cover and inner pages were designed by master paper makers and use lokta from the northern Dolakha region of Nepal. The hand-painted designs are examples of traditional Nepali art.
