The popularity of Origami has been an ever-growing trend in the UK. Origami is the traditional art of paper folding in Japan, and has since grown to be a worldwide phenomenon. 

Origami can be made from any type of paper and is a great way to encourage recycling by turning it into something you can wear and show off! At Lavender Home we can make completely bespoke items to match your style

This beautiful Mandala Tamba Taja Flower brooch, originally designed by Falk Brito, can add a touch of elegance to your outfit and is great for Weddings, prom or other formal events. 

Origami Rose Brooch made from Chiyo Kirigami Paper

Different paper can also represent different things, this Rose brooch is made from Chiyo Kirigami (paper). Each pattern and colour of Chiyo Kirigami comes with a different meaning. The paper used with this brooch has a Shippou (translated as Seven Treasures) pattern in a deep, dark purple colour. Shippou patterns come from a Buddhist concept and were originally used in cloisonne work, the art of decorating metal. The combination of the pattern and colour conveys a message of harmony and peace.
