Product Description & Reviews

The Nepali Keeper Journal from Kathmandu Valley Co. uses hand-made Lokta paper based on the thousand-year-old paper making tradition in the High Himalayas of Nepal. The Lokta paper comes from a non-tree source, the Lokta bush, which grows on the southern slopes of the Nepali Himalayas between 5,250 and 13,000 feet. When properly cut, the lokta bushes produce three to eight new, fast-growing shoots making Lokta paper one of the most sought after non-tree papers. The inner bark of the lokta bush is removed by hand and then "cooked" into a mash which is then carefully spread on boxed screens and set to dry in the Himalayan sun creating one of the toughest and most resilient papers. The paper is 100% bleach free and is handmade in the rural, high-altitude villages of Nepal utilizing the traditional deckle/uneven page edges. Lokta paper has a beautiful texture containing natural flecks from the bush and can vary slightly in thickness from page to page due to the unique handcrafting process. The Sage Journal's unique coloring is made from a combination of Indigo (blue) and Pomegranate (yellow from the pomegranate skins) dyes mixed together to produce the popular Green Sage coloring. Keep and preserve your memories, thoughts or sketches on the 96 unlined pages (192 front/back). Measuring 10x9 inches, it's the perfect size for any adventure. The Nepali Keeper is the perfect note-taking companion at home, work, or for your adventures and journeys around the globe. This Himalayan handcrafted treasure supports the talented Nepalese artisans and preserves the thousand-year-old tradition of hand made paper in Nepal. Namaste
