Handmade Lokta Paper Garland- Owl
You'll love the brightly colored Owl Garland. The garlands are handmade in Nepal by a women's cooperative from plain and patterned Lokta paper. Lokta paper is made from the bark of the Daphne plant. The bark is harvested while the plant is alive, so it is a sustainable resource. This handmade Lokta paper is made using traditional processes that have been the same for hundereds of years. The Owl paper garland is a favorite for a baby's room or the perfect gift enclosure for a bird-loving friend. Brighten your room with the Owl Handmade garland. Each garland is approximately 5 1/2 feet in length and features a variety of colors and patterns.

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."
