About Monk Paper

For Monk Paper, a retail business based in Columbia, Maryland; all of the handmade paper products are imported from Nepal, a culturally and naturally rich country in South Asia.

Monk Paper’s initiative to expose this unique and one of its kind creation worldwide has been well received in a short span of time. We have experienced our customers sharing the recognition that we hold for these products and the charisma has been growing with our unconstrained offerings.

A remarkable achievement for Monk Paper is the success of our undertaking to preserve and promote the centuries old art of papermaking by hand in Nepal. We are proud of the reinforcement of local employment opportunities for men and women in the rural Himalayas and also of the considerable financial upliftment of the potential artists.

100% Genuine and 100% Eco friendly Lokta Paper.

Our Lokta Papers are exclusively and traditionally hand - produced in the rural Himalayas of Nepal, using local labor and raw materials. These acid free papers are made with no electricity usage*, no synthetic additives and most significantly, no trees destruction. The bark of the Lokta bush that grows at an altitude of 6500-9500 feet from sea level, is a renewable source with a capability to regenerate itself from the undamaged root system. The high quality, germ-resistant and eco friendly Lokta papers are thus transformed to useful and thoughtful Monk Paper products.

We strive to offer value to our customers, provide 100% customer satisfaction and an uninterrupted customer care.We believe in fair pricing and beneficial deals for all the parties involved. Along with business, our philosophy establishes a responsibility towards our customers, society and the environment.
