Make your own accordion-fold book with fair trade Lokta Paper from Nepal. In the Himalaya, women collect the bark of the Lokta bush to make into beautiful, textured, tree-free paper. This handmade paper has been used for centuries for sacred or historical books and documents. Add your own pictures and words to your accordion book to complete the story!
