AÂ bone folderÂ is hand tool used in paper crafts such as bookbinding and origami to create sharpÂ folds andÂ creases. This bamboo folder was designed and crafted originally as a Limited Edition for Atelier origami out of dyedÂ bamboo from Arashiyama, closeÂ to Kyoto andÂ whichÂ is famous for its unique bamboo quality. After being put into shape many layers of urushi lacquer have been applied to give aÂ high endÂ finish. Atelier origami’s logo is engraved into the handleÂ and filled with goldÂ paint, a techniques similar to the one used traditionallyÂ in the bamboo ruler crafting.
