Tired of the results you get with traditional origami paper? Then try Lokta paper! It's a paper much appreciated by origami artists for its qualities of flexibility, softness and exceptional strength, while offering a silky texture that perfectly imitates, for example, the fur of an animal. Many origami artists, such as Anicé Claudéon and Gachepapier, often use it to enhance their folds.
It comes from a shrub that grows in Nepal, high in the eastern Himalayas. The exceptional quality of the paper is due to the beating of the carefully cleaned bark, which does not break the fibres but softens them.
