“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 crane in Japan is one of the mystical or holy creatures and is said to live for a thousand years. Some stories believe you are granted eternal good luck, instead of just one wish, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. This makes them popular gifts for special friends and family.
Each crane is carefully folded from traditional Japanese origami paper designed for cranes.
