Bhutanese Lokta Paper, Handmade, Large Sheet, Ink, Calligraphy, Bookbinding, Printmaking, 60x80cm
Large Sheet: 600x800mm
Surface Finish: Medium
Artists’ handmade paper, made in Bhutan. This quality artist resho paper is made from the bast fibre of de-nar lokta, resulting in a darker toned and harder surface than typical Nepalese lokta paper.
The paper is made in the traditional Himalayan 'floating mould' way, where the pulp is poured onto the paper frame . The mould is then left in the sun to dry naturally, imparting a slightly textured laid pattern throughout the fine crisp paper. Bhutanese lokta paper is a robust and durable paper, which makes it ideal for drawing in ink, calligraphy, printmaking and bookbinding.
This versatile paper can also be used for crafting, collaging, letter-writing and other art projects.
