Handmade Paper Gift Wrap

Lotka Holiday Gift Wrap

Made in Seattle    Lotka    Nepal    India    Wraps    Holiday    Midori

We are excited to offer our seed paper Holiday Line. These earth friendly papers are the best choice for your gift wrapping this season. Each sheet is embedded with wildflower seeds that will bloom if planted or naturally break down in your compost pile. We have developed these designs to blend class with an eco-minded taste.

Wrap your gifts this year with no guilt as not a tree was harmed nor a stream polluted to create this paper. Made from natural plant fibers, our papers are tree free and surprisingly strong. These sheets can be used over and over. We make every effort to ensure our papermaking process is as 'green' or environmentally friendly as possible.

20"x30" Sheets - 4.00

Lotka paper is made from the bark of the Daphne bush which regenerates naturally providing a renewable resource.
This paper is acid free and your purchase will benefit the economic enterprise of rural craftspeople in Nepal.
The Daphne bush is farmed and harvested from 3-4 year old plants that are cut down and stripped of their bark to become the raw material from which the sheets are formed. The plant is not destroyed when cut down, it regenerates from the root. The cane like stick, once it's bark is removed, is dried and used to heat the villagers homes and to provide cooking fuel for meals and also for the production of the paper. All of the water used in the paper production is reclaimed and reused. The bark is beaten by hand and boiled to break it down to a pulp (where it is mixed in with recycled pulp and paper scrap collected from the card and envelope manufacturing process) that is then poured into screens to form the sheets. These sheets are then dried in the sun. The whole process is not only earth friendly but also provides a large community with a healthy enterprise.
