As one of Asia's most historic and traditional arts, origami combines the Japanese words for folding (ori) and paper (gami). While there is some speculation regarding the exact date and location of origami's origins, many experts trace the unique paper folding practice to at least the 17th century AD. Other evidence also suggests that Chinese monks brought origami folding techniques to Japan after paper making was introduced to the country between the 6th and 7th centuries.
For several years, origami was used primarily to create decorations for religious ceremonies and special occasions like weddings and holidays. As the mass production of washi and other varieties of paper spread throughout Japan, origami eventually became a more accessible and popular pastime enjoyed by millions.
