Origami Society of Toronto was founded in 1986 as a club for advanced folders and enthusiasts. Like origami itself, the Society has been affected profoundly and positively by world-wide technological and social changes. Today, the Society continues to evolve while remaining true to its mandate to promote the appreciation and practice of origami in the Greater Toronto Area.

When we first started selling our large papers, we had a difficult time trying to find the best storage solution. Everything that was on the market seemed either too bulky, too large, too flimsy, or too hard to manage! We had limited space in our warehouse and wanted a solution that was both low-profile but also easy to stock and restock.
After looking long and hard, we decided that we should design something in-house! Our talented in-house designer / engineer created the perfect wall-mounted storage rack that we’ve now been using for many months. Our staff loves it and it saves us space and time.
We’ve received many emails to date asking us for advice and tips to store large origami paper or large tissue paper. We’ve sent photos of our storage solution around and received a lot of requests to make it available for sale on our site. We are very happy to announce that you can now purchase our specially designed Large Tissue Paper Storage Rack on our website!! It is available as a 12-slot model right now, but it is completely modular so that if you’re looking for 36 slots, you just have to buy three sets and you can install it side-by-side or one on top of another! If you need further customization, just send us an email and we will work with you until you get your perfect product.
We look forward to hearing your feedback on our storage rack!
