Konichiwa! My name is Saya, and I am the creator of Obagami Origami House. I was born and raised on a small island paradise located in the warm, southern waters of Japan. From a young age I learned to respect the beauty of nature. Our island is filled with lush forests and beautiful ocean. I grew up in a very traditional Japanese home centered around art, music and dance. My grandmother and I spent many afternoons practicing the traditional art of paper folding, origami.
At Obagami I create jewelry and art from the simple origami forms I learned as a child. I decided to bring this Japanese tradition to America by way of a unique art form.
Through my work, I hope to forge a blend of eastern tradition with a western decorative appeal. While the folding techniques I use are traditional, I choose color schemes, layouts and materials best suited to my art. All of my materials are carefully selected for color and quality. I constantly strive to create new designs and patterns, and have produced many custom pieces. And of course, all works are handcrafted by me. You can select your favorite origami gift from wearable origami (jewelry), kusudama (dreamcatcher) and framed wall art.
Obagami is a new endeavor. Watch us grow with a constantly evolving product presentation and an expanding online presence. I attended The Marketspace at Westfield in 2018 through Marketspace Vendor Events and am excited to be participating in Maifest 2019 in Hackettstown, NJ. I hope to see you soon at one of our upcoming events!
Obagami Origami House will be at this upcoming event!
