Lama Li

Lokta Papers



Though we do not currently ship our decorative paper selection, both of our retail locations feature a wide variety of handmade papers useful for every project.

Lama Li paper is handmade in the mountains of Nepal from the inner bark of the lokta bush. Lokta is one of the strongest paper fibers, and since new growth regenerates quickly it provides a renewable resource for the artisans who depend on the fragile ecosystem of Nepal for their livelihoods. Proceeds from the sale of Lama Li paper returns to the cooperatives that make the paper, directly supporting workers in rural and urban areas of Nepal.
