Handmade Lokta Paper Garland- Turtle
Add some color and whimsy to your play room or office with the Turtle Handmade Lokta Paper Garland. Each unique turtle is made by hand of decorative Lokta paper by a women's cooperative in Nepal. The Lokta paper is made using traditional processes that use little energy. It is made from the bark of the Daphne plant that is harvested while the plant remains alive, so it is a sustainable resource. Each garland is approximately 5 1/2 feet in length. We are sure you will love the Handmade Turtle Garland.

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."
