This handcrafted lantern is made with upcycled glass, carefully designed with homegrown, handpicked and pressed Geranium, Gaura, Clover & Fern leaves and a textured, eco friendly paper called Lokta. The lantern glows with a soft warmth when lit, highlighting the vibrant Geranium flowers and the subtle Mulberry fibres of the handmade paper, creating a peaceful atmosphere.

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.
I bought this wonderful lantern for a Christmas present. As always, it arrived safely, because of the way it was sent, using eco friendly packaging.
