Until recently, not all forms of paper folding were grouped under the word origami. Before that, paperfolding for play was known by a variety of names, including "orikata", "orisue", "orimono", "tatamigami" and others. Exactly why "origami" became the common name is not known; it has been suggested that the word was adopted in kindergartens because the written characters were easier for young children to write. Another theory is that the word "origami" was a direct translation of the German word "Papierfalten", brought into Japan with the Kindergarten Movement around Japanese origami began sometime after Buddhist monks carried paper to Japan during the 6th century.

In the first known origami book was published in Japan: Senbazuru orikata. There are several origami stories in Japanese culture, such as a story of no Seimei making a paper bird and turning it into a real one.

The modern growth of interest in origami dates to the design in by Akira Yoshizawa of a notation to indicate how to fold origami models.

The first known origami social group was founded in Zaragoza, Spain during the s. As the kindergarten system spread throughout Europe and into the rest of the world, it brought with it the small colored squares that we know of today as origami paper.

Josef Albers , the father of modern color theory and minimalistic art, taught origami and paper folding in the s and 30s at the famous Bauhaus design school. His methods, which involved sheets of round paper that were folded into spirals and curved shapes, have influenced modern origami artists like Kunihiko Kasahara. The work of Akira Yoshizawa , of Japan, a creator of origami designs and a writer of books on origami, inspired a modern renaissance of the craft.

He invented the process and techniques of wet-folding and set down the initial set of symbols for the standard Yoshizawa-Randlett system that Robert Harbin and Samuel Randlett later improved upon.

Modern origami has attracted a worldwide following, with ever more intricate designs and new techniques. Variations such as modular origami, also known as unit origami, is a process where many origami units are assembled to form an often decorative whole. Complex origami models normally require thin, strong paper or tissue foil for successful folding; these lightweight materials allow for more layers before the model becomes impractically thick.

Modern origami has broken free from the traditional linear construction techniques of the past, and models are now frequently wet-folded or constructed from materials other than paper and foil. With popularity, a new generation of origami creators has experimented with crinkling techniques and smooth-flowing designs used in creating realistic masks, animals, and other traditional artistic themes.

Sadako and the thousand cranes[ edit ] One of the most famous origami designs is the Japanese crane. The crane is auspicious in Japanese culture. Sadako was exposed to the radiation of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima as an infant, and it took its inevitable toll on her health. She was then a hibakusha — an atom bomb survivor. By the time she was twelve in , she was dying of leukemia.

Her classmate told her about the legend, so she decided to fold one thousand origami cranes so that she could live. However, when she saw that the other children in her ward were dying, she realized that she would not survive and wished instead for world peace and an end to suffering. A popular fictional version of the tale is that Sadako folded cranes before she died; her classmates then continued folding cranes in honor of their friend.

This version of her story has been refuted by the Hiroshima Peace Museum [9] and her family. While her effort could not extend her life, it moved her friends to make a statue of Sadako in the Hiroshima Peace Park. Every year 10,, cranes are sent to Hiroshima and placed near the statue.

The tale of Sadako has been dramatized in many books and movies.
