Senbazuru means "a thousand cranes" in Japanese.
It is an old Japanese legend that whoever folds 1000 origami cranes will be granted a wish from the gods. After the bombings of Hiroshima & Nagasaki, a young woman named Sadako Sasaki started her pursuit in accomplishing this task. She was only able to make 644 cranes before she passed away at the age of 12, due to the radiation. Honorably, her peers laid her to rest with the full 1000 cranes by her side.
I created this brand for 2 reasons: 1 - to fulfill a promise, and 2 - to remind the world that morals and character hold more value than gold. And that no matter how much money one accumulates in this world, the spiritual value of connecting with your family, both living and dead, is priceless. Just how the peers of Sadako Sasaki honored her, we at SENBAZURU, vow to honor those who we've had to lay to rest, as well as those whose blood runs through our veins.
