Tibet-Papier

Wonderful, this writing paper from the Himalayans ...

Of course, we have our own writing paper. Made … you know who and where. There aren’t so many good printers left on the globe. But from time to time you should make notes or correspond with friends on Asta Mangal, a paper made in Tibet and Nepal by hand, according to an ancient process from the bark of the Daphne Bush. It’s printed from hand-carved wooden blocks, decorated with mythical scenes, beasts, the eight auspicious sins and gods from the Himalay region. No page, no envelope is like the other, your pen is often blocked by some floral remains, the ink loves to spread like the Ganges delta – but while writing, you will feel elated, a certain magic evaporates from this „Lama Paper“ and you will love it like the Dalai Lama does. So try to get Asta Mangal, the next time you are in Katmandu, or a friend of yours is going there …
