Master the art of paper folding
The earliest forms of origami were made by monks and religious leaders. Eventually rich and elite Japanese began creating origami as well. Origami was limited to this small part of the population because early forms of paper were highly expensive. The average Japanese person couldn't afford to buy paper, let alone fold their expensive paper up for mere decoration. Wealthy Japanese also had more time to dedicate to creating art than their lower-classes.
Earliest records of origami indicate that it was used primarily for religious or ceremonial reasons. Eventually, as people became more interested in it, origami was used for decorative and artistic purposes. Origami also used as a tool to teach basic principles of math and geometry!
