(暖簾) Noren is a traditional Japanese curtain or fabric divider. There are many sizes, cloths, colours, and designs. It is used for dividing between rooms and hanging on walls, in doorways, or in windows. In Japan, a noren is found everywhere at the entrance of many restaurants, shops and public bath for both practical purposes and the decors. I grew up having some Noren divider inside the house. My family always tried not to use AC or heater to save some money , so Noren blocked cold or hot air coming in from other rooms. We often gathered in one tiny room with Noren hanged because of that. I believe naturally dyed noren will bring joy and special connection between people.
