“Origami (from ori meaning “folding”, and kami meaning “paper”) is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, which started in the 17th century AD at the latest and was popularized outside of Japan in the mid-1900s. It has since then evolved into a modern art form.”
The so called Lucky Stars (folded paper origami stars), mainly significant to middle school and high school students of Asian countries, are somewhat of a ritual in this culture. These stars that are folded and handmade, are used as gifts, mostly between couples, to signify how much you love or care about someone. If you’re not giving the stars as a gift of love, then the stars can be used to make a wish. This ritual of ascribing meaning to the stars, and meaning to giving them to someone brings these Lucky Stars into circulation. They are circulated between couples, and friends, and given as gifts.
Each tiny origami star is carefully folded from traditional Japanese origami paper.
Each Star bottle has random origami colored stars.
