A Bit of Inner Peace in the Big City

14 01 2014

When you think of Nepal, what comes to mind? Sherpas? The Himalayas? Bruce Wayne seeking his true calling in life? How about handmade paper? For centuries, handmade paper from fibers of the inner bark of the Daphne bush has been used for writing and printing Mantras for Buddhist prayer books. Even the first Tibetan currency was printed on this paper. Locally called “lokta” paper these papers are extremely durable, fine-textured, and completely acid-free. A.I. Friedman is now carrying a line of this paper by Tibetan Paper & Handicraft. Available in 20″ x 30″ sheets and assorted journals, these papers feature a wide range of colors and styles from tie-dye to metallic lotus to dragon motifs. If a bit of a calming influence is what your busy life needs, look no further than this selection of paper to adorn your next gift, use as a backdrop for your latest artwork, or to write your most restful thoughts in.
