Flyable Folded Paper Kites
This page attempts to record what is known about the origin and history of flyable folded paper kites (as opposed to kites made using paper in other ways). Please contact me if you know any of this information is incorrect or if you have any other information that should be added. Thank you.


Instructions for folding and flying a 'Cometa' (Kite) appear in 'Guia Practica del Trabajo Manual Educativo' by Ezequiel Solana, which was published by Editorial Magisterio Espaņol in Madrid in 1904.
