Wakuni Shoten Origami Crane
▼Each product is handmade by skilled artisans
The Origami Crane by Wakuni Shoten is handcrafted by sheet metal artisans, who masterfully fold and shape hard metal sheets, durable enough to withstand years of use as construction material, as if they are paper. The artisans pour their souls into creating each Origami Crane with care to every small detail, and the finished keepsake is a testimony to what the bird traditionally represents in Japan, the hope for longevity.
▼Wonderful gift for loved ones
As in the old saying “Cranes live for a thousand years,” the beautiful bird has been a symbol of longevity from ancient times, and is also evident in the widespread custom to fold one thousand paper cranes to pray for health and peace. Such a cherished symbol of good luck makes a wonderful gift to wish for a healthy future for someone special. Made with the utmost care by artisans using very durable material, the ornament can be admired forever carrying each other’s hearts.
▼Enjoy the transformation over the years
The copper and brass materials used in the Origami Crane are both metals which can be enjoyed for their aging effects. Over the years, they naturally change their color and texture, and will eventually become a one-of-a-kind crane that is unique to its holder. As the person it is gifted to spends their healthful days and life together with the crane, its transformation will be a beautiful reminder of the occasion of the gift.
