The Nepali Eco Journal with lokta paper from Kathmandu Valley Co. is where rustic meets utility with hand-crafted PAGES TWICE AS THICK as the original eco journals. The pages are made from the lokta bush grown on the southern slopes of the Nepali Himalayas between 5,250 and 13,000 feet. The Eco Journal is the perfect choice for those seeking a truly unique notebook. The fibrous inner bark of the lokta bush is "cooked" into a pulp then spread on screens and sun-dried. The beautiful texture from the process is characteristic of hand crafted lokta paper. The paper is acid-free and is widely regarded as one of the world's finest hand-made papers. The paper is not treated with bleach like other papers and is hand made in rural, high altitude villages of Nepal. When properly cut, lokta bushes can produce three to eight new, fast-growing shoots making lokta paper one of the most sought after sustainable, tree-free papers. Lokta paper has a beautiful texture containing natural flecks from the bush and can vary slightly in thickness from page to page due to the unique handcrafting process. A perfect note-taking companion at home, work, or for your adventures and journeys around the globe, you'll love spending time with this notebook. The clean-cut pages reference tradition book binding while a textured, vegetable-dyed exterior, and hand-bound pages in the binding add to the natural appeal of the Nepali Eco. Capture your memories, thoughts or sketches on the 80 unlined sheets (160 pages front/back). Measuring 6 x 9 inches, this journal is the perfect size for any adventure. This Himalayan hand-crafted treasure supports the talented Nepalese artisans and preserves the thousand-year-old tradition of handmade paper in Nepal. Namaste.
