Description
 
In Japan, noren ("door curtains") provide a bit of privacy between rooms or between the home and the street. They can also serve as window treatments or interior design elements in a western home.

We love the color and design of this fabric. The silk is a sturdy, slightly nubby silk in a light cadet gray-blue. The design of colorful sparrows is just delightful.

The birds were made with the ikat technique, where the threads are dyed before being woven so that the design is revealed on the loom. The edges of the pattern are slightly irregular, which is why this technique is sometimes called "fuzzy weaving". Amazing. See the video below for more on this artistic process

The top features a 2" sleeve that would fit a tension or curtain rod (1" diameter is best) that would hold the noren at the top of the doorway/window.

See the second video below on how noren are displayed in modern day Japan.
