Cranes are said to live for a thousand years, and turtles for ten thousand, according to Chinese legends such as in 'Huainanzi - Shuolin Xun', symbolizing longevity and auspiciousness.

In Japan, the tradition of 'Senbazuru,' or a thousand paper cranes, involves folding 1,000 origami cranes, which are then strung together, often with thread. The crane, considered an auspicious bird, represents further good fortune when depicted in large numbers, such as a thousand. This tradition is practiced for various purposes such as blessings, well-wishes, consolation in times of disaster, prayers for recovery from illness, and as a gesture of sympathy.

This practice also became a symbol of peace following the story of Sadako Sasaki, a young girl who succumbed to leukemia caused by radiation from the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. She folded paper cranes in hope of prolonging her life, making this tradition a poignant emblem of peace.

These products are imbued with the wish for a world without conflict and at peace.
