Why Nepali Handmade Lokta Paper?


Touch Nature 6mini Soap Set in Nepali Handmade Lokta Paper Box

Also known as Nepali Kagaz, the Lokta Paper is a handmade paper made of the fibrous inner bark of the Lokta plant, an indigenous plant in Nepalese southern slopes of the Himalayan forests.


The most distinctive feature of the Lokta tree is its regenerative property, which happens naturally every 4 to 5 years. Hence it not only helps prevent soil erosion but also has no negative impact on the environment.


Due to its variety of uses, the Lokta tree is an asset to the economy of Nepal, giving employment to hundreds of men and women in rural areas.


Why we use Lokta Paper to make our gift boxes:


  1. High resistance to mildew and insects such as paper crawlers and silverfish

  2. Non-perishable in water and not easily torn

  3. Last for a long time and protects items wrapped in it from scratches

  4. Unique texture and feel, decorated with dried flowers, which comes in a variety of colors

  5. Eco friendly and environmentally sustainable

  6. Not treated with harmful chemicals such as bleach

  7. Indirectly supporting Nepalese handmade paper artisans in rural Nepal


Due to the high resistance of Lokta Papers against humidity and mildew, government officials have traditionally used them for official documents and religious texts.
