Batik Sunwashed and Metallic Lokta Origami Paper

Dyed and Batik Lokta Origami Paper from Nepal

Have you tried Nepalese Lokta paper for origami folding before? If not, you are in for a real treat! Handmade Lokta Paper is an eco-friendly paper hand-made from the fiber of the "Nepal Paper Plant," also called the Daphne Shrub or Lokta Bush. The cultivation of this "tree free" paper is an eco-friendly resource and a reliable revenue stream for the village artisans of Nepal's rural and urban areas.   

These Lokta Papers combine handmade paper with rich, vibrant color and dyed patterns. The result is a beautiful paper with unique color designs and textures on both sides of the sheet. The paper is slightly heavier than traditional origami papers, but it folds like a dream and is extremely durable. The colors and hand-made properties of the paper provide incredible surface color and lines to any origami sculpture.
