Our Handmade Bhutanese Rainbow Fabric Notebooks are very special. They are handmade for us by one of our fair trade producers working in the Kathmandu Valley, high up in the Himalaya.

The Bhutanese Rainbow Fabric is as it's name would suggest a traditional Bhutanese Fabric, however over the centuries there has been a steady stream of merchants with their caravans of sure footed Himalayan Donkeys, travelling between the himlayan nations of Bhutan and Nepal.

These days the rainbow fabric is very poplar in Nepal, so much so that many people think that it is a Nepalese material. It is loved for it's bright colours but also it's hardwearing properties and as such our Rainbow notebooks are perfect for journals or other occasions when a hard wearing book is required.

We use traditional Nepali Lokta Paper in our books, Lokta Paper is a traditional Nepali craft going back thousands of years and is made from the Lokta or Daphne Bush, a wild shrub that grows wild in the Himalaya at altitudes of 5,000 - 13,000 ft where little else grows. It produces a fine textured paper that is valued for it's strength, durability and resistance to being eaten by insects.  Infact historically Royal Decrees and Religious Texts were wriiten on Lokta Paper and is said to last for over 1,000 years!

Lokta Paper making has historically been important economically as it has been one of the few industries in Nepal dominated by women who are traditionally underemployed.

Our Lokta Paper is made in the traditional way in Kathmandu by a small business run by three Nepali Women. It is unusual in traditional countrires like Nepal to find women running their own businesses, so we like to support them. Our handmade paper products are a bit different and make excellent gifts!

Lokta paper has a wonderful texture but is smooth enough to write or draw on.  Each notebook contains approx. 38 leaves of traditional handmade Lokta Paper. 

We have two sizes of our Traditional Bhutanese Rainbow Fabric Notebooks; medium 11.5 cm by 15 cm ( 4.5" by 6 " and large 16cm by 21 cm ( 6" by 8 ")
