About Mei

My name is Mei. Before I opened this shop, I was a part-time nanny , babysitter and student trying to get through school. Being a nanny, I always teach children with some creative things or cheer them up with a simple origami butterfly or rose....Not only does these tricks amaze children, but also their mums. A mum asked me if I can make her some butterflies for decorating her bare wall. Why not? I gave her a lot of them,she framed them and hanged them up on the wall. The pictures looked great, I was inspirited by this and decided to do something with my skill and creativity.

It has been more than four years since I put my heart and soul in this Etsy shop. It is not easy, but all the hard work have been paid off, Mei origami studio survives and thriving.

I am very grateful to Etsy, it opens a whole new world to me.The world is my market. I have shipped to more than 30 countries so far.I am proud of myself by building a shop that people enjoy browsing and buying. All my customers' orders, reviews are my energy pills that keep me going. I will keep working hard and bring you more beautiful handmade items.
