Handmade Lokta Paper Rosette- Red and Cream Blossom- 16 Inch
You'll love the Handmade Red and Cream Blossom Rosettes: they add color and fun to any space! Simply open the accordion folded rosette and you have a lively decoration featuring a stunning Red and Cream cherry blossom design. The rosette is made in Nepal of handmade Lokta paper by a women's cooperative. Lokta paper is made from the bark of the Daphne plant that is harvested while the plant is alive. This process makes the bark a sustainable resource. The paper has been made using the same traditional process for hundreds of years. Each Large rosette has a 16 inch diameter. It features a decorative paper clip for closure and a string for hanging. Support women in Nepal in your decorative choices with the Handmade Large Red and Cream Blossom Paper Rosette.

"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."
