Repeat // Origamy        

Origamy is a collection of knitted origami objects, aimed at providing comfort and joy through fidgeting. By enabling small, repetitive movements, Origamy provides support during psychological challenges. Anyone who experiences stress, deals with sensory processing difficulties, or just feels like playing with something, can call upon these tiny companions.

As fidgeting can help to connect with others, support the development of fine motor skills or help to retain fading memories, Origamy offers a sustainable, technically advanced, and haptic alternative to common plastic fidgeting tools.
