Origami

Paper folding relaxes and increases concentration. It lets you focus on a given moment and a given task. Completing a demanding figure is very rewarding ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Here are some fun facts about origami:

๐Ÿ‘ Origami is derived from two Japanese words: Ori (folded) and Kami (paper). Before that, the art was called โ€œorikataโ€ (folded shapes).
๐Ÿ‘ Initially, the art of paper folding was restricted only to ceremonial occasions because paper was scarce and expensive.
๐Ÿ‘ The fastest time to make 100 origami cranes is 40 minutes 35 seconds, achieved by Yoneyama Yuichi (Japan) in Nagoya, Japan, on 30 November 2010. Thatโ€™s an average of 24.35 seconds for each crane!
๐Ÿ‘ An ancient Japanese legend says if you fold one thousand cranes you will be granted a wish. Feeling lucky?
