Plantable Blue Lotka Wrap Invitation – Bow Tie


About this Invitation

The picture shown above is a Lotka Wrap Invitation in Blue with Natural and Umber (brown) colour eco ribbon tied in a bow.  This invitation and envelope are embedded with wildflower seeds and will bloom when planted. Lotka paper is made from the bark of the Daphne bush which regenerates naturally providing a renewable resource. This paper is acid free and will benefit the economic enterprise of rural craftspeople in Nepal. Planting this paper will produce flowers if properly cared for. The outer wrap is 100% compostable and the printed invitation inside is embedded with wildflower seeds (as is the envelope). The ribbon is also 100% compostable so the entire invitation can be planted. Each invitation includes a note for your guests instructing them on how to plant the invitation and a bit about the paper. The Lotka paper is vegetable dyed.

How we make these invitations

First we design the invitation, print onto the seeded natural colour paper and trim to size. Then we type and print the name tags also on the plantable paper and tear the tags by hand to size. Next we tear the Lotka paper by hand and fold twice into the gate style you see. We then mount the printed invitation to the inside of the Lotka wrap. Then the fun starts! The eco ribbon is also vegetable dyed and made from recycled paper and is tightly twisted. Where ever we want to make a leaf or bow we have to untwist the ribbon which is very difficult to do. Once we’ve done that we make a bow and pull the ribbon as tightly as we can without breaking it – this is the tricky part and sometimes we accidentally tear the ribbon and have to start over 😒. The finished product is fabulous and worth the effort. Your guests will love planting the invitation in memory of your big day!

Planting Guide

This invitation and envelope can be put directly into the dirt in a pot or in your garden. The soil should be firmed down after sowing and the seeds should not be more then 1/8” deep. They must be kept moist for 4-6 weeks and receive 4 hours of sunlight each day in order to germinate properly. Many wildflowers are drought tolerant once established, but must receive adequate water as they sprout. For best results plant in the Spring or early Summer. Water and sun are the keys to success.

Please note that this paper is a handmade natural product. As there are fibers and seeds in the paper there will be natural imperfections. They are also vegetable dyed so some colour variations can also be expected.
