EVERY EXPERT BEGINS WITH A FOLD

There are already so many wonderful resources available for all levels of origami enthusiasts, both online and in print. There are also many opportunities to meet like-minded folders by joining local, regional, and international organizations. Fortunately, with today’s technology, it’s much easier to find excellent designers providing diagrams and instructions in most major languages, making origami all the more accessible.

If origami has already found a global community, what’s the reason for creating Expert Origami? Our goal is not to promote our own models or simply publish diagrams that are popular at the moment but to create a way to easily share the amazing works and ideas that are coming out of Japan — to help give a new generation of Japanese designers an international voice.

Our beginnings may be humble, but we hope you will join us on our journey of spreading the love of origami from one culture to another.
