Whilst in Japan, I visited this paper factory that makes the traditional stunning Japanese origami paper.
Origami was first mentioned in Japan in 1680 in a poem by Saikaku, which describes paper butterflies in a dream.
Love the look of this old origami book in the Japanese folk museum Tokyo.
Origami hanging bundles in a temple in Kamakura. Whilst in Japan, both a wonderful friend and a lovely lady who was a complete stranger (more on that story later) very kindly bought me origami sets. Just need to get practising now!

We've been a little inspired by peacocks recently at Anzu. Above, the Anzu Sapphire peacock card.

Not sure who this bracelet is by, but we want it!
