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.

This little two-panel noren is a semi-sheer silk that lets a bit of light shine through. The fabric features an overall geometric pattern that resembles ancient writing done in a block script - or perhaps the symbol "koudo" which is associated with Japanese incense? The threads were twisted during the weaving process so there are shiny elements scattered about that catch the light differently and produce a bit of shimmer. Really cool.

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 video below for how noren are displayed and used in modern Japan.
