The Lokta Solid Bordeaux paper is handmade from the fiber of Nepal's paper plant, Daphne cannabina. All sheets have four deckled edges, are long-fibered, strong, and beautiful. Lokta paper is completely natural, acid-free, and tree-free. When glued down, the paper takes on the look of leather, which makes it great for bookbinding and box making. Lokta is easy to work with and versatile and is a favorite of collage artists, printers, and calligraphers.
