Origami is the art of folding paper into various shapes traditionally without cutting or gluing. Having been a popular activity among children for hundreds of years in Japan, the colored, square-cut paper is now globally recognized by artists as an essential art and creative material.

Literally, “ori (oru)” means “to fold”, and “gami (kami)” refers to “paper” in Japanese. Origami culture started in China during the first to second century, and then spread to Japan sometime in the sixth century. Its original use was for religious purposes and then later, it was used for wrapping. Origami finally evolved during the Edo period (1603-1867) into what it is today.
