Item details

Paper by the sheet available in 8x10 inches. Shipped flat in the U.S. only.

Silver and gold bodhi leaves printed on creamy handmade Lokta paper. This paper is somewhat irregular, adding to its handcrafted nature.

Lokta paper is handmade in Nepal from the fiber of the Daphne Shrub or Lokta Bush.

Interesting fact: the Lokta bush completely regenerates in about 4 to 6 years after being cut to about 6" from the ground.


FAQs

I love making the perfect book for you! Please look for the "Design Your Own" listings under Custom Albums. You will be able choose your own cover design, album size, personalization, etc. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions. Full custom design work where I assist in design and finding optional cover materials is available for an additional fee.

If you need a rush order, please ask me first as rush orders are not always possible. The fee for a rush order is 15% of the product total. This is in addition to any express mail fees.

Do not use tape to clean paper or leather! ~ Satin ribbon is ironed prior to shipping, but may need a touch-up upon arrival. Use the synthetic setting and iron slowly. ~ Smudges can be removed from pages with a gummy art eraser. How to adhere photographs ~ There are many safe possibilities including photo tabs, photo tape and photo corners. Look for terms like "acid-free," "archival" or "photo safe." I try to keep a selection of these products in my shop.
