Origami, the Japanese art of paper folding, has been enjoyed by many people since ancient times. It is the traditional Japanese game of folding elaborately creating paper into myriad shapes, typically including plants, animals, and other living things.

In addition to folding, Morisa origami can be used to make everyday items such as envelopes for small cards, chopstick rests, chopstick holders, small box for snacks and others. You can enjoy making everyday necessities with these beautiful washi origami.

These fine sheets of Origami are made of washi paper, known as Tosa Washi Paper, produced by Morisa in Kochi Prefecture. The place is known for the high quality of its Kozo (paper murberry) and mitsumata (Edgeworthia chrysantha), the raw materials used to make washi. Tosa Washi Paper is characterized by its thinness and durability.

This set of origami contains three sheets of each with four different colors. 

These sheets of origami are produced with a technique called Rakusui. It is a traditional technique to make a pattern on washi paper by dropping water onto the wet washi. The paper is characterized by its lace-like appearance with holes. 

The pattern on this Origami is called Asanoha. This pattern is popular among those who hope their babies' good health and growth, because a hemp is strong and fast-growing.

Tosa Washi Paper

Tosa Washi Paper is Japanese paper made in Ino-cho, Kochi Prefecture, and around Tosa City. Together with Fukui Prefecture's Echizen Washi and Gifu Prefecture's Mino Washi, Tosa Washi is one of the three major types of Washi. Known for its gentle touch and warm texture, it was designated as a traditional craft in 1976 because of its fine quality.
