We ended last year on a high with a record number of orders from members of the British Origami Society many of whom were renewing their subscriptions and buying paper at the same time. As official suppliers to the BOS we also stock a wide range of books on Origami which are available either in hard copy or as e-books. Members enjoy a 10% discount on their entire order.
As mentioned in our last newsletter we will be producing seasonal pages which will focus on major events in the calendar, the next one being Valentine’s Day 14 February.
Packs of Metallic Paper
100 Sheet packs of pearl and metallic papers were launched last year and proved quite popular in the runup to Christmas, the paper being suitable for making Christmas decorations.
Mineral Paper and Vivid Paint Boxes
These are now available for sale and we will be offering some bargains for January. Our mineral paper is very good for folding and is also water-resistant so it can be used for floating models. In addition, it makes an excellent surface for water-based paints acrylics watercolours etc. We have it in three sizes A5, A4 and A3.

Very thin paper that looks wonderful with the light shining through it!
New to our range is this pack containing all you need to produce the beautiful boxes shown on the cover. It includes pre-printed patterned papers for the lids, tant paper for the boxes as well as standard origami paper so you can practice the model before using the patterned paper. The designs have all been created by Makoto Yamaguchi, once of Japan’s creative Masters.
Here’s a video review of this paper and & a tutorial for the “Pinwheel” by Philip Shen
Here’s a video review of this paper
Our resident folding expert Nick Robinson tested out a pack of Pantone Four Seasons Colour paper in one of his school classes and had a favourable response. “The class loved them and in the end, the rest of my lesson plan went out the window, we folded & cut our way through an hour’s lesson. The students rated it “9/10” and some of them cut their own shapes from the leftover paper to further decorate the patterns.
Here’s a new product suitable for students of kirigami (paper cutting & folding).
We’ve got 2 sizes of the popular “harmony” style paper coming soon – watch for the video review!
