(as of Jan 02,2023 17:07:47 UTC – Details)
The Nepali Eco Journal with lokta paper from Kathmandu Valley Co. is where rustic meets utility. With pages hand-crafted from the lokta bush grown on the southern slopes of the Nepali Himalayas between 5,250 and 13,000 feet, the Eco Journal is the perfect choice for those seeking a truly unique notebook. The fibrous inner bark of the lokta bush is “cooked” into a pulp then spread on screens and sun-dried. The beautiful texture from the process is characteristic of hand crafted lokta paper. The paper is acid-free and is widely regarded as one of the world’s finest hand-made papers. The paper is handmade in rural, high altitude villages of Nepal. When properly cut, lokta bushes can produce three to eight new, fast-growing shoots making lokta paper one of the most sought after sustainable, tree-free papers. Lokta paper has a beautiful texture containing natural flecks from the bush and can vary slightly in thickness from page to page due to the unique handcrafting process. A perfect note-taking companion at home, work, or for your adventures and journeys around the globe, you’ll love spending time with this notebook. The clean-cut pages reference tradition book binding while a textured, vegetable-dyed terra exterior, and hand-bound pages in the binding add to the natural appeal of the Nepali Eco. Capture your memories, thoughts or sketches on the 80 unlined sheets (160 pages front/back). Measuring 6 x 9 inches, this journal is the perfect size for any adventure. This Himalayan hand-crafted treasure supports the talented Nepalese artisans and preserves the thousand-year-old tradition of handmade paper in Nepal. Namaste.
