Handmade Wedding Invitations with Lokta
These gorgeous handmade wedding invitations were created using heavyweight petal paper made from 100% recycled white cotton, processed chlorine free, embedded with real aster, marigold and cornflower petals plus bits of grass. The beautiful handmade cards are layered with a translucent vellum overlay consisting of pure cellulose fiber, which is naturally translucent and free of resins and chemical additives, recyclable, biodegradable, elemental chlorine free and FSC-certified. The vellum was printed with a vintage bird illustration (1268 Old Time Cuts and Ornaments book), which can be used as a motif throughout the entire event on place cards, menus, programs, etc.
A lokta cord was used to attach the vellum to the petal paper card, providing a beautiful and unique embellishment. Lokta is an native shrub in Nepal, harvested by cutting its stem, which regenerates in a few years. The inner bark of lotka is soaked, hammered into pulp then spread into thin sheets and dried by the sun and hand-rolled into cording. The invitations also included an envelope made from 100% post consumer fibers, also processed chlorine free.
