Black Ink - Nepalese Momi Lokta Paper - Olive Green - 17x27in. - Deep, rich earthtones in solid and "pinto" patterns are the allure of these vegetable-dyed papers from Nepal. These lokta papers are handmade from fiber of the "Nepal paper plant", called the Daphne shrub or Lokta bush. Growing around 6-9,000 feet up in the Himalayan region of Nepal, this bush completely regenerates in about 4 years after being cut to about 6" from the ground. Therefore, 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. When glued down the papers take on the look of leather which makes them great for bookarts.
