2011 product book

the Graeham Owens story Back in 1998 we purchased a little company from a friend in Portland, Maine. That little company had been importing handmade lokta paper from Nepal. We loved this paper and the products made from it and envisioned new colors, new papers, new products… The new company was called Graeham Owens (I had two young sons at the time – Graeham, 3, and Owen, 2). Oliver came along in 1999. The little company grew and grew. We were soon shipping lokta paper and product to almost every state in the country and several customers in Canada. The color palette and the product line expanded, as did sales. We were on to something here! Now, more than a decade later, we continue to evolve and expand. We’ve many customers who’ve been with us for more than 10 years and we are indeed grateful. New customers are finding us every month. We’re grateful for that too! We’ve been green before being green was hip. The lokta plant, from which our paper and products are made, is a renewable and tree free resource that grows wildly in the Himalayas. The plant completely regenerates from the same root system after harvesting. Our paper is made in rural, mountainous villages without the use of electricity or petroleum, as it was hundreds of years ago. Did you know that Tibetan Monks have used lokta paper for almost one thousand years for their manuscripts? Having travelled to Nepal many times over the past twelve years, I’ve met the folks who make the paper, seen the process, befriended many Nepalis. It’s a fascinating place. I’ve had the extraordinary opportunity to take each of my 3 sons to Nepal, to meet the hospitable Nepali people, to experience a completely different world and culture. We believe in paying fair prices for the paper and products we import from Nepal. This is simply fair + just + right. Our partners in Nepal deserve to benefit from the fruits of their labor and ingenuity equally as much as we do. Is there any other way? We have every confidence that our earth friendly and socially responsible paper and products will delight you and your customers! On behalf of our Nepali partners and our little company here in New Hampshire, we thank you!
