Did you know that…
Origami is paper folding. The word comes from the Japanese ‘oru’ meaning ‘to fold’ and ‘kami’ meaning ‘paper’. It is generally regarded as Japanese, although it is very likely that other cultures independently evolved their own paper folding traditions.
Origami probably is as old as paper is! There was certainly a tradition in Japan (and probably also in China and Spain) as far back as the 16th century. This was likely to be the simple traditional models handed down from parent to child.
Special Origami paper is available which has the particular qualities that make it more suitable for folding, but almost any paper will do.
