This is a large unusually shaped handcrafted lantern made from upcycled glass. It is designed with homegrown, handpicked and pressed flowers and a thin translucent lokta paper made from the regenerating bark of the Saa tree. The natural elements in this lantern glow with a soft warmth when lit creating a peaceful atmosphere.
Height: 21.5 cm
Diameter: 15.0 cm
When lit ensure the tea light is in the centre of the lantern. To protect the colour of your lantern store out of direct sunlight. To clean, wipe inner with a damp cloth/glass cleaner.
Lokta paper is acid and lignin free and is made in Nepal using a traditional handmade method. When harvested, the Lokta bush regenerates within 5–7 years. The oldest available manuscripts of Hindu and Buddhist texts are written on Lokta paper. The contents of a Buddhist prayer wheel contain a tightly-wound scroll of Lokta paper upon which a mantra is written thousands of times. It is also used in traditional medicine as an antiseptic bandage.
