Origami is paper folding –
often associated with Japan.
Origami actually began in
China around 100 AD.
About 500 years later in 600
AD. Origami became
popular among the
Japanese.
Long ago paper was
expensive and not as easy to
get ahold of so origami was
done primarily by the
wealthy.
Despite the change in the
availability and cost of
paper, the Japanese are still
thrifty and will use even
small pieces of paper.
Origami spread to England
and the U.S. in 1900.
There was a peace
movement with origami
