This White and Gold Kathmandu Paper Star is intricately patterned. Handmade in Nepal and crafted from the bark of a shrub, locally known as “Lokta”, this star can be hung on your tree or wherever else you want to add a little festive colour.
Nepal is well known for its unique papermaking and products, such as these Kathmandu Paper Baubles, which are crafted by small businesses. The businesses are then supported by a Swedish Fairtrade brand which collaborates with rural artisans to highlight their craftsmanship in developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America, thereby creating jobs in regions where craft is the main source of income.
This star is foldable and can be clasped by a small paperclip, meaning that you can also store it easily and use it again year after year.
