For Spring 2015, architect and 3D paper designer Tereza Hradilkova of PORIGAMI introduces the Five Elements range drawing inspiration from Greek and Japanese elements of earth, fire, sky, wind and water in the form of folding paper fans. Choosing earthy tones of Majestic brand papers, each element is cut with textures and symbols around the leaves of the fan representing the element’s natural force.
While not only a beautiful card, the fans are also meant to be displayed in the home, where written messages on fans are used to display support in many Asian cultures. Of course, they do make the perfect gift for a wedding, a summer BBQ or a baby shower as the fan is both beautiful and practical. Each fan is sold in a transparent envelope and decorated with one of PORIGAMI’s handmade, five element stamps. Writing on the cards is simple, and once completed the fan folds easily to its original shape and can be inserted back into the envelope.
