Ancient Japanese origami used cut or marked paper, and was first mentioned in a poem from 1680. In Europe 100 years later, German pedagogue Friedrich Fröbel taught kindergarten children simple mathematical forms by folding whole pieces of paper. This system was imported to Japan after 1860, and is the basis for what we consider modern origami.
