While the origins of this particular button are unknown, the paper crane (or "orizuru") is the most popular design of the Japanese origami (paper folding) tradition. The paper crane represents the Japanese red-crowned crane, significant in Japanese culture. Paper-folding traditions began with ceremonial use at weddings and funerals, and some designs were attached to gifts as greeting cards are today.Origami is now often used as a form of recreation and entertainment, and many books on origami techniques have been published for anyone to learn the craft.
