Purificacion Garcia known for their Origami bags is a brand that aims at cultivating the region’s creative community as well as discovering emerging talents and strengthen support of local artists in the GCC.
In order to do so, the brand has recently collaborated with BOHO Café in Jeddah by offering a workshop to any participants to learn the art of Origami being the inspiration for their Origami and Ori bags.
Of Japanese origins, the particularity of this technique is to transform paper into figures of different sizes,which can range from simple models to very complex folding from a square initial base.
Participants were able to learn how to make fun loving action models such asbirds, butterflies, lady bugs and flowers from various colored papers using Origami techniques.
The benefit of Origami is being proven to develop creative thinking as well as creative problem solving.In addition, folding familiar models is known to be mindfulness therapy, as it challenges the motor skills and creative thinking concurrently.
