I love origami and even more I love Oriland. When I first found this site I was like: Woah! because it was just so creative! I only wish you could do an exhibition of all your creations in the UK.
I'm a pre-service teacher and I was scouring the web one day for more origami designs. For the past month I had been working out of 3 origami books I found lying around. After so much practice out of the books I became tired of the limited designs. I was disappointed as I had not been able to find anything much better on the web... until I found your website! I was totally blown away. It was EXACTLY the type of thing I had been looking for! I am truly amazed and am going to buy some products immediately! Oh.. but the castles! I MUST absolutley and positively make those beautiful castles and houses! I want to create a whole village! Please, if you are not working on getting the architecture on CD, please start!!!! I just can't get over how cool your origami is!
I am so impressed by your easy to follow instructions! I will look at purchasing one of your books shortly. Some of the best instructions I have seen. My daughter is 7 and together we found it easy to follow along. Thank you.
I only found Oriland a couple of days ago so that I could find ideas about what presents I can make for my family for Christmas. When I looked through the Treasury, I was so amazed at how someone could make a thing like that! I mean everything was so beautifully and well made almost as though it were made from something more delicate than paper! This site is absolutely incredible and it must have been tough work trying to make all these models! Oh and I was so inspired by these models and my results were beautiful!
I love Oriland I think that it is incredible the way that you get to learn about origami and how you can make your own origami. I have shown many of my friends this site and they also say that it is very good. Thank you for giving me more to create I am very greatful.
I love your models, and both of you have wonderful artistic abilities. Both of you create stuff I never knew you could make out of paper. Keep up the good work, oh and thank you for the diagrams you have, I really appreciate it.
You guys have got real genius... and magic in your hands too... and beauty at your fingertips... a big applause... keep the good work up...
I came across your website months ago when I was looking for Origami flower materials. I was so taken aback by the vibrant and whimsical creations, they were absolutly charming! The Oribana that you have made are wonderful, This is the first time that I have seen it done so elegantly. The detail and imagination that is put into your models are greatly shown through your website, which was one of the selling points for me to purchase the Oribana Charm CD. I also found it wonderful that you covered with great screen shots, what the CD layout and look was going to be, I felt very confident in making a purchase. And lastly I recieved yesterday to my suprise the CD, in just 8 days after I placed the order. The CD runs great and there are many real photos showing what the final outcome of a model looks like. This is much better for me to compare what I have done when working with a new diagram for the first time, instead of comparing it to a drawn rendering. My overall experience from my very first encounter with the website till recieving my CD has been a very pleasant experience and I definatly look forward to doing business with you again. :)
I must say that your creations are both magical and awe-inspiring. I could not stop smiling the whole time I was on your site.
Who knew? What an amazing world you have created here! I am passing this site on to everyone I know. Thank you for sharing your lovely gifts...
Amazing!!!! I love Oriland! This site is very interesting and colorful! I never have thought origami could be this exciting! Keep up the good work! Oriland forever!
Unbelievable! You've created a whole world and all the inhabitants. I used to have a toy store and at first glance it looked like plastic. I'm seeing visions of a movie, (the newest thing since claymation) where the magical creatures "make" themselves when they want to appear somewhere new. I don't know which is more amazing, your imaginations or your skill. Also an incredible web site. Love the little moving circles around the people and the magic wand. WOW!
Fantastic Site!! I am a graphic designer looking for some inspiration and stumbled on your site. I am truly impressed with the site itself and the diagrams and well everything really! I have already passed it onto my Japanese friend who is looking through it now. Well done, keep up the good work!!
Hello! I just wanted to say that you have a wonderfully beautiful site. I love the colors you have incorporated into the origami and am very impressed with your creative talents. Keep up the great work!
This is the best site I've seen yet! I LOVE IT! Precise diagrams and easy to follow. Thank you!
Really great web-page! I appreciate especially those very clear diagrams and fresh, colorful photos. The idea of a land created just from origami models is a pleasing childhood dream which you bring to life very succesfully - thanks a lot! ;)
Oriland has lots of origami. I've done origami scince was only 5. The origami in Oriland have such beautiful artwork!! Oriland treasury has so much diagrams that's so cool!!!! I love Oriland it's colourful and beautiful!!
Very good site; cleverly done diagrams, handy explanations... beautiful... and free! Thanks a lot! I especially loooooved the models in the "decorations" section. Marvellous. Keep it up!
I have been looking for a nice place to make origami, and I found it! After see a lot of places of origami in the web, Oriland it's just the best! Keep the good work Oriland Creators Yuri and Katrin!
This website is incredible! I recently started origami and I'm doing little basic things. But then I found this site and I see that you can do anything with it! These models are so cool!
I have written in before, but I have to say again, Thankyou for the great site. A few months ago I purchased the Oribana Beauty, Origami Land, and Bijou, and love the all. I am very fascinated with oribana, and have made arrangements for friends, and for those in hospital. Thankyou so much for your origami!
It's the best orgami I ever in the whole wide world!!!!
Wow! What a beautiful website! I stumbled on it from another Craft site, and I am so glad that I did! I love it - the colors, the free e-cards, the patterns to make so many different paper objects! Thank you for creating this wonderfully fun site. I plan on telling a lot of my friends about it!
Completely BLOWS my mind!!! So beautiful... I ordered 2 of the CDs! It has been years since I lasted folded, but recently I wanted to create flowers for friends and other loved ones. I have books, but the Oriland creators and this website have shown me a whole other world! I can not say enough about this website - surprised that I came across it and I hope others will share in my excitement!
GORGEOUS site! I literally gasped when I first saw it. The diagrams and galleries are nothing short of beautiful and imaginative, and they range from simple elaborate. I mean, just check out those castles!!! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.
... I have no words to express what I feel everytime I visit Oriland... It is just wonderful and inspirational. Thank you.
This is absolutely fantastic!!! it is the best origami website i have ever been on, the fact that you can do all of it with NO cutting or sticking is amazing
I would like to say that this website is perfect for imagination and inspiration! I wish I could do all of the castles. Oh, wait, I would like to make everything that I see on this site! It's wonderful, beautiful, perfect...it's everything positive you can say. Keep up the good work!
Amazing! The time, effort and INCREDIBLE talent that went into this site. And you share it with us...Thank You
I think it is a spectacular website. I've got the opportunity to make many things that I didn't know how to make in the past. The ideas, the methods and the diagrams are all absolutely amazing. I have learned a lot from this web site and I hope to learn more in the future. Thanks to Oriland!
Wow! This site is like no other. I love the creativity put into every detail.
I love Oriland. It is the best site on the Net. I visit it everyday and Thanks again Yuri and Katrin for creating such an adorable site which can be cherished throughout the world!
Awesome, amazing, educational, exciting, creative... This is a site I will be investing a LOT of time viewing. What a TREASURE to find on the web!
Before I found Oriland I could never find any new models and almost gave up on my hobbie. Oriland saved my interest! The Oriland kingdoms are adorable!
This is a very well-done and lovely website, Katrin and Yuri!!! Very informative and useful. I am a visual artist, have been working with many other media to create artworks, but still, paper is one of the most fasinating media to work on. I had learnt about origami when I was very young, and thought origami was only for young kids, and I hadn't folded anything till lately, when I was preparing some special gifts for my boyfriend. I filled up a beautiful glass bottle with about 300 paper-folded colourful stars and hearts, and he loves them!!! And now, he's also learning origami with me together!! :)Thank you very much for creating such a inspiring website again!!! and keep up on the great work! :)))))
I am absolutely amazed and thrilled to discover this site. This is the best origami site I have discovered. I also enjoyed the appearance of the site and thought it looked fantastic. I am definitely going to buy the Oriland cd. This site will heaven for people who live and breath origami[like myself]. To the people who created this site continue doing what you are doing.
Oriland is the best origami website I have ever found. Everything is excellent! After going through this website I have known the true meaning of origami and being artistic! Thank you.
My best friend told me about this site and she really loves and I just wanted to say that I LOVE it TOO, it is like, tottaly the best and I tell all my friends about it cuz i know that they will love it too! Thanks to all the ppl who made this site possible, YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!!
You have created the most beautiful and instructional origami site that I have discovered. Your diagrams are easy to follow and have encouraged me to tackle designs I might otherwise have shied away from. Thank you for creating such a wonderful and inspiring online origami experience.
I love the creativity and beauty of the site. I was really impressed by the origami-world's photos! Everything is so nicely done, from the diagrams to the navigation to the content. Thank you for making this site!
I absolutely LOVE Oriland!!! I think it's the coolest website. I also think that the modular origami on the flowes are SO amazing!!! All my friends agree with me and don't see a reason why they shouldn't. Please, make more of your exquisit oriland origami!! I am looking forward to seeing more. I, unfortunately, I don't know how to very complicated ones, I know some but they're really simple, so all I can do is enjoy the beauty of it made by someone else. Lana. Good Luck on inventing more awesome origami!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wonderful. The colours used are really a great help because we can see very well how to fold. The book Oribana is very nice too. The best site... I was looking for it, i found it : here !
Hello Yuri and Katrin! I just watched the webcast of the ChildNet awards ceremony wherein the Oriland.com is a winner. I made that heart pretty well, not as perfect but as significant of learning a 7th century masterpeice by use of the 21st century Internet! This is the second time I wrote my message on the GuestBook, I have saw how quality your site is. truly the two of you deserves the honor. I truly would like to congratulate your team, I am an entrant to this year's childnet, so pray for me! bye : )
Wow ! I finaly got to see Oriland in Charlotte. It was fantastic. I love the CD's and can't wait for the Oriland castles CD. It was a real pleasure meeting both of you and i would love to see Oriland in Australia some time.
A feast for the eyes and imagination! What a quest, kudos to the artists!!!!

Wow! I've never seen such a beautiful site as Oriland! My 4 year-old daughter is also fascinated with the site. Viewing the browser, she now asks me loudly 'mom, fold that castle please!!' ---Oh my! I need a hard lesson! My daughter recently learned how to fold an airplain. She has always some pieces of origami wherever she goes.
This is such a delightful site for kids and kids at heart - congratulations on your creativity and wonderful presentation. This is one of the most creative sites you'll find on the web.
