The word origami comes from a combination of two Japanese words; ori which means folding and kami which means paper. The art form originated in Japan in the 6th century and was initially preserved for religious ceremonies only but by the 17th century, origami had become popular in mainstream Japanese society - used for decorative and ceremonial purposes. In recent years it has enjoyed escalating popularity around the world, with origami societies and competitions springing up all over including The US, Europe, Australia, Italy, and China as well as the British Origami Society which was the first association, founded in London in 1967.
