Helpful information about Origami from Aitoh

Origami is an ancient Japanese craft. It is believed the idea of folding paper to make forms was brought over to Japan in the 6th century from China, and it has grown and become an integral part of Japanese culture and spread across the world. In its most basic form of origami is the art of folding a flat piece of paper into 2-3 dimensional shape. Designs for origami paper come from all over, traditional kimono patterns, designs from Japanese images or just simple or not so simple graphics. 

Did you know origami paper is not just printed copier paper? It has to do with the way the Japanese make paper. They allow the fibers of the wood to be long, eliminate the bark that has the most acid. This gives a sheet that is very strong and sturdy though it is very thin. The process of turning the pulp into paper is also different as they allow the fibers of the pulp to be very disorganized, as opposed to western paper that is shook on its way to being made into paper that straightens the fibers along one dimension. This is why origami paper folds easily no matter the direction.

Origami not only is meant for creating shapes but it's also a great craft paper to use due to its versatility. It's perfect for paper crafting because it can be folded, die cut, stamped, used as embellishments or even works as a paper for gel printing. Use origami paper on your next collage or decoupage project, jewelry making and other crafts too. The paper is so thin that when you collage with it or use it when you decoupage, the thickness of the paper does not build up, giving you that desired smooth look to your finished design.
