Origami is thought to have been introduced to Japan centuries ago by Chinese monks. Although the practiced flourished starting in Japan's Edo Period (1603-1867), some historical experts have identified paper folding techniques dating back hundreds of years earlier in such diverse locations as Germany and Spain.
Today, origami is extremely popular throughout Japan and many other parts of Asia and the West; however, the practice was once reserved for religious ceremonies or special occasions like weddings or holidays. As the Japanese began mass producing washi and other types of paper, origami material became more accessible and the practice grew in popularity. By the early 20th century, origami masters like Akira Yoshizawa began recording the details of their original and innovative paper folding creations.
Each set of tan origami paper includes 50 one-sided square sheets secured in protective plastic wrapping. Students, arts and craft lovers and collectors of Asian novelties are sure to be delighted by our hands-on tan origami paper sets! (Discontinued)
