Origami Cranes Garland

Regular price $12.50 $0.00 Unit price per

This festive eco-garland is made with paper from sustainably harvested Himalayan lokta shrubs that grow in the remote highlands of Nepal. Lotka regenerates after every cutting, thus providing a sustainable source of income for rural people while preserving the fragile mountain ecology.

Skilled artisans use traditional paper making techniques to create this delightful decoration using traditional dying and screen printing techniques. Hang them anywhere, but do not expose to rain. Colors may fade in direct sunlight.

  • Garland is 5 feet long (1.5 meters)
  • 12 origami cranes on each strand
