Welcome on Origami Shrine!
What is Origami?
Origami (折り紙) is the Japanese name for the art of Japanese paper folding.
The word is Japanese, literally meaning "to fold" (oru) and "paper" (kami).
Traditionally in origami, it is accepted to fold a model from a square sheet of paper. However many origami artists use also different shapes of paper.
