Day 64 - Paper cranes

I love paper cranes. These ones came from a shop in Brunswick St called Kami (Japanese word for paper). Many years ago I was teaching English to students of different nationalities, including Japanese. The Japanese girls were lovely, and gave gifts, such as hand-written and drawn stories of exquisite detail. One student made hundreds of paper cranes, but tinier than these, and threaded them. They were made from plain coloured paper and looked like rainbows on a string. Fond memories.
Where's the green in this picture and what is the item?
