"Ori" means fold and "gami" or "kami" is paper in Japanese. Origami is an ancient technique of paper folding that I cannot do justice to a proper description of all the intricacies so I will leave it to the experts to describe it ...
Is a repeated pattern with no overlap or gaps in the pattern and is accomplished with pleats to join the folds. The single sheet of paper often starts out double the size of the finished piece and can be extremely complex in detail. A beautiful description is given by wonderful origami artist Ilan Garibi in his book on origami tesselations
Varieties of papers are used in the creation of the finished pieces with the majority of the paper Japanese paper (Washi) and often handmade papers -all are acid-free papers. Washi is a beautifully strong and resilient paper that is considered UNESCO intangible cultural heritage. A wonderful detailed description is given on the Wikipidia page
