In Washi origami the “Ori” means folding, gami (or rather kami) means paper, so origami literally means folding paper.
Normally the use of glue or cuts are not allowed and art pieces made by these techniques are not considered to be origami works.
When glue and cuts are used in the process then it is usually called kirigami.
Although origami is generally considered to be of a Japanese origin, there are evidences that other cultures around the world had their independent traditions of paper folding.
The list of things that could be made by origami is endless, but please let us name some that are used in our everyday lives:
paper cup, salt keeper, book cover, gift wrap, flower wrap, candy wrap, chopsticks wrap, utensil wrap, gift decoration, gift box, snack box, envelope, toothpick holder, and a wallet (kirigami):
So what would be the ultimate goal of origami again?
To extend the boundaries of what you could create out of a single piece of uncut washi paper.
How about giving it a try?
Well then what is washi?
Washi is a paper made in Japan. Wa stands for Japan, shi stands for paper.
The materials of washi paper vary, what’s common in them is that all the washi are made of natural fibers from plants like: gampi tree, paper mulberry, bamboo, hemp, wheat and rice.
The general characteristic of washi paper is being stronger than the ordinary papers made of wood pulp, which makes it to be an ideal material for all kinds of traditional Japanese
arts like: ukiyoe, shodo, sumi-e, washi eggs and so on. It’s no wonder that traditional Japanese doors and windows, called Shoji in Japanese, were all covered by washi paper. Even umbrellas were made using washi.
There are many manufacturing areas of washi in Japan. Please let us mention some of them:
Fukui – Echizen washi
Fukuoka – Yame washi
Gifu – Mino washi
Hyogo – Sugiharagami
Kochi – Tosa washi
Mie – Ise washi

The origami model that may be the best known all around the world is the Japanese paper crane.
There’s an interesting custom in connection with this model.
Have you ever heard of the Thousand origami cranes? In Japanese it is called “senbazuru”, which
could be directly translated to a “Thousand winged crane”. Traditionally it is a benevolent charm that
was given to a newborn baby a long life, good luck charm, as a wedding present, given by the father,
who would like to wish a thousand years of happiness to the newly wed couple.
Thousand winged cranes are donated to many temples in Japan that accomodate an eternal flame for
world peace as an expression of peoples’ wish for world peace.Usually the senbazuru are left disposed
to the weather, so they will be slowly dissolving into nothing similarly to the payer flags in south asia.
There are actually various sets sold in one package by us for making senbazuru. Please contact us if you
are interested in purchasing some of these sets.
In fact our 100 colored washi origami paper is a perfect choice for making a luxurious looking Senbazuru set,
since the 100 different colors will look beautiful and the high quality handmade washi origami paper will
make sure that all the thousand cranes will look perfectly authentic Japanese.
