Make your own paper prayer flags with handmade, fair trade, Lokta Paper from Nepal. Create your own symbol or mantra on each flag, string them together, hang up your flags and spread your wishes to the world!
Travelers to Nepal's sacred sites will see hundred of colorful flags, waving in the breeze. Tibetan buddhists create these prayer flags by printing matras and symbols on the five colors, which represent elements of the earth. When the flags blow in the wind, they carry good wishes out into the world.
