Mimi’s Origamis creates lightweight, elegant, and unique jewelry that is handcrafted from traditional Japanese paper and 14K gold-fill metals.
Mimi’s Origamis is an Austin-based jewelry company that was created to share the beauty of origami in jewelry form.
Mimi is a creator, mother, and first-generation Japanese-American who grew up in NYC. Origami was a big part of her childhood and how she connected with her Japanese culture. When she became a mother and taught her son how to fold paper cranes, the idea for the first design and Mimi’s Origamis was born: the double cranes featuring a parent and baby crane!
Each piece is hand-folded from traditional Japanese washi paper and sealed with a protective glaze. Pieces are paired with hypoallergenic 14K gold-filled metals to create lightweight, elegant, and unique jewelry. The designs are inspired by the beautiful silkscreened patterns of the washi paper and Mimi’s unique experience as a first-generation Japanese American.
Through each handcrafted piece, her wish is to spread the message of peace, creativity, and good fortune origami represents.
