This handcrafted lantern is made with upcycled vintage glass found within the walls of an ancient French barn. It has been carefully designed with homegrown, handpicked and pressed flowers and leaves and a textured, eco friendly paper called Lokta. The natural elements in this lantern glow with a soft warmth when lit creating a peaceful atmosphere.
Height: 12.5 cm
Diameter: 7.7 cm
To clean, wipe inner with a damp cloth/glass cleaner. When lit ensure the tea light is in the centre of the lantern. Allow the wax to cool before replacing the tea light.
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.
The lantern I ordered is even more beautiful in real life. I bought it for a gift but love it so much I am going to find it very hard to give it away!
