A notebook from Nepal, hand made from local Lokta paper and with an inspirational quotation on its opening page.
The paper covering this notebook has been coloured with an azo-free teal dye and is screen printed with a stylized mountain design. The opening page has an inspirational quotation from Dr Seuss: You're off to great places, today is your day, your mountain is waiting so get on your way".
The notebook is hand made in small workshops in Kathmandu Nepal from paper produced from the Lokta tree, found only in the Upper Himalayan region. The outer layer of Lokta bark is collected in rotation which ensures the preservation of the trees as this bark layer regrows. The paper itself is produced by a traditional technique where the bark is boiled and the soft pulp spread evenly in a wooden frame in water, and finally sun dried. The resulting paper is known for its durability and special texture.
