What is origami?

Today we know origami as the art of paper folding, creating intricate 3D shapes and figures without cutting or gluing at any point. While the nature of recreational origami has changed since it originated in Japan in the late 1500s, it is now commonly enjoyed across the globe as a hobby anyone can take up!

Origami commonly uses a single square sheet of paper with one coloured side and one white side. Square origami paper must be able to hold a crease, as this will allow the figure to stay in shape once folded.

Origami paper FAQs

What is origami paper?

While you can technically make origami with paper of any shape, most origami paper is square, thin and only coloured on one side. Square origami paper sizes include 7.5cm squares, 15cm squares and large 25cm squares. Origami paper can come in any colour, print or pattern - red origami paper is very popular, as are Japanese floral designs for more intricate work.

How to make paper origami

While there are many easy instructions to find in books or on the internet, the most important things to remember when making paper origami are to fold precisely and sharply. This means lining up your paper carefully when making any folds to ensure it is folded evenly, and pressing down sharply as you fold to create a thin, clean crease.

How big is origami paper?

Origami paper can come in large 35cm x 35cm sheets if you need to make large or very detailed origami sculptures.
