Basic terms of origami fabric

The pattern is one of the six basic fabric origami patterns, which are a square, a circle, a pentagon, a hexagon, a large octagon, and a small octagon.

The module is a fabric blank, cut out using a template, stitched and ironed.

The base is a product to which flowers are folded, folded from the blank modules.

Companion fabrics – fabrics used in one product. They can be combined with each other by background color, pattern, etc., complementing each other. For example, on the same colored background there may be similar patterns, but different in color and different in size. Fabrics can also be selected by resorting to the “negative-positive” technique: for example, on one material – white flowers on a red background, on the other – red flowers on a white background, the same size. In addition, one fabric can be dyed and the other, of the same color, with a pattern, etc. Contrast materials can also complement each other. It is them that they take to create origami from fabric, so that the products turn out to be expressive. Contrast is mainly used in color. Petals, for example, are made of light-colored fabric, and the base is made of darker ones, or vice versa.
