High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Chinese Paper Folding, or Zhezhi (pinyin: zhe zh ), is the art of paper folding that originated in China. It is the predecessor of origami. The work of Akira Yoshizawa widely popularized the Japanese name "origami"- however, in China, and other Chinese speaking places, the art is referred to by the chinese name, Zhe Zhi. Paper was first invented by Cai Lun in the Eastern Han Dynasty in China. In the 6th century, Buddhist monks carried paper to Japan. The first Japanese origami is dated from this period. Due to political isolation of mainland China until the Qing Dynasty, examples of early zhezhi are rare in comparison to works from the same time from Japan and contemporary Spanish-speaking lands. The first noteworthy book from Japan on the subject was printed in 1797, Sembazuru Orikata ("The Folding of 1000 Cranes").
