This pack contains 200 high-quality origami sheets printed with Kokeshi Japanese Doll Patterns.
Kokeshi dolls have been crafted in Japan for more than 150 years. These children’s toys – and later popular souvenirs – are handmade from wood with some delicate painted details. Their most recognised feature is a lack of arms and legs. These illustrations were chosen to enhance the creative work of origami artists and paper crafters.
The pack contains 12 patterns unique to this pack, and all of the papers are printed with coordinating colours on the reverse side to provide aesthetically pleasing combinations in origami projects that show both the front and back of the papers.
