Many different origami artists agree that Origamido paper is pretty much as close to perfection as you can get. This paper is hand made by Michael LaFosse and Richard Alexander at the Origamido Studio. Every sheet of paper is a unique work of art.
Robert J. Lang describes this paper as “Thin, strong, crisp, takes a crease and isn’t overly weakened by folding.”
It’s a very thin paper and ranges between 20 to 50 gsm. The thickness can vary from sheet to sheet since it’s all handmade. The paper is made from a variety of different plant fibres including Abaca, Hemp, Flax, Cotton, Liene, Kozo, Gampi and Mitsumata all blended together. The most common size of this paper is 40cm x 50cm but other sizes are available.
Origamido paper is amazing but it’s definitely not for every day folding. This is the paper you want to use when you’re folding something incredibly special.
