By Dean Schwartz (SWAG Master): One of the most creative art forms around is origami. Origami is the art of paper folding, which is often associated with Japanese culture. However, today people use the word “origami” as an inclusive term for all folding practices, regardless of their culture of origin. This creative art form is a wildly popular craft among kids and adults all over the world.
Crafts, in general, are trending upward as they are seen to promote emotional well being. To underscore that point, look no further than the surge in adult coloring books in recent years. Origami is also riding this wave of popularity. And why not? It is a fun craft that exudes almost Zen-like calming qualities. Experts say benefits of practicing this craft include developing hand-eye coordination, sequencing skills, attention skills, patience, temporal and spatial skills, and math reasoning.
At SOBO Concepts, we love all different forms of art, and we love being creative. So obviously we think origami is super cool. In fact, we think it is so much fun that we had to SWAG it out! You can make practically anything with this ancient art form, but we wanted to show you one of our favorite products. The origami ice bucket.
Origami Ice Buckets
These folding origami ice buckets are a creative way to keep your beverages cold. They are absolutely perfect for events, outdoor restaurants, conferences, and so much more. Traditional ice buckets are bulky and difficult to store, especially if you’re throwing a large event. But these ice buckets fold completely flat for easy storage. And because they fold flat, they also ship flat, which means you will save a lot on shipping costs.
The design of the ice bucket is cool enough by itself, but it also presents the perfect branding opportunity. SOBO can do full-color graphics on both sides to create a unique look and to promote your brand. These origami ice buckets will not only keep your drinks cold, they will save you space and money all while making a statement about your brand and creativity. Pretty good for an ancient art form!
