Our stunning gift boxes are handmade from Lokta, a shrub that grows in the foothills of the Himalayas. After being harvested, it is boiled, cleaned, and beaten with wooden mallets to produce a fibre pulp. It is then mixed with water and poured into a shallow frame made of bamboo poles and canvas, before it is dried in the sun. Natural dyes and details are then added to the paper by the skilled artisans, creating the beautiful, acid-free paper.
The Lokta paper covers recycled paper card to give the boxes their structure.
Due to the handmade nature of our products each one is unique, but loveliness comes as standard.
Make a Difference
Our beautifully handmade gift boxes and gift wrap are sourced from Get Paper Industries (GPI), an incredible, socially aware cooperative in Nepal.
The charity work they do in the local area has earnt them many awards, from their support of people affected by HIV and Aids, to establishing schools to support the education of underprivileged children.
Milan, a founding member, is a man with an amazing passion for life, and he and his team are making a huge difference, as we’ve been fortunate enough to see with our own eyes. As our own small contribution to their work, Paper High sponsor 10 girls to attend one of their schools.
