Origami is a Japanese compound word which means “paper folding". "Ori" means to fold and "kami" (changed to "gami" due to rendaku) means paper. It formed the word "origami".In madarin we called it "zhe zhi"

Origami is the art of paper folding. A wide variety of types of paper could be used. Typically, the paper used in origami making is square, and the two sides are often different colors. Multicolored Japanese origami paper can be used to create pieces with contrasting colors or panels in different patterns.
