Origami is a practice loved by many and can take a long time to master. In case you weren’t aware… November 11th is Origami Day in Japan. But, did you know that origami is not entirely a Japanese invention? A similar art using cut or marked paper was used in ancient Japan, and is first mentioned in texts from 1680.
