Handmade Lokta Paper Rosette- Moroccan Yellow- 12 Inch
Support a women's cooperative in Nepal in with the Handmade Medium Moroccan Yellow Paper Rosette. Use the rosette to decorate at your next party or tie it on a gift! A Nepalese women's cooperative folds the handmade yellow Lokta paper, printed with a white pattern inspired by Moroccan architecture, into a rosette with a 12 inch diameter. Lokta paper is made in Nepal with ancient traditional processes that use very little electricity. The process involves harvesting bark of the Daphne plant while it remains alive. The plant re-grows the bark, so it is environmentally friendly. Each rosette has a decorative paper clip for closure and a string for hanging. You will love the Handmade Lokta Paper Moroccan Yellow Rosette!

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."
