Handmade Lokta Paper Garland- Horse
We are not HORSING around with the Handmade Lokta Paper Garland! Use the Handmade Lokta Paper Horse Garland to bring the barn to your decoration. The garland is made in Nepal. Traditionally crafted paper is cut into horse shapes and sewn by hand by a Nepalese women's cooperative. Before the garland is created, the paper is also made by hand. Bark from the Daphne plant is harvested from the plant while it is alive, so it is an entirely sustainable. The garland measures approximately 5 1/2 feet.

Read more about Lokta papers in our blog post:
"Lokta paper is made from the bark of a Daphne bush, which grows exclusively at the foot of the Himalayan mountains. The inner bark provides extremely long fibers to create paper, which gives Lokta paper a very durable quality. To create the Lokta paper, the bark is striped from a living bush which not only helps the bush to grow, but the bark completely regenerates in six to seven years. (A truly eco-friendly paper!) The inner bark is cooked, beaten down into a wet pulp, and scooped up into paper molds. Color is added to the paper through natural bark and flower based dyes, and this paper never touches chemicals or bleaches. Not only is Lokta paper hand pulled, it is also hand-dyed, hand screen printed, and batiked (stamped with wax) making every sheet unique in color and weight."
