Why We Love It
This artistic noren curtain features an exuberant red carp artwork by esteemed contemporary visual artist Hideki Kimura. The koi carp is a symbol of luck, prosperity, and good fortune in Japanese culture. This series of original hand-painted murals by Kimura can be seen in Osaka’s historic Japanese garden Taiko-En.
How To Use Your Noren
Unlike typical noren curtain which are traditionally made from cotton or linen, this thoughtful noren design is made from 100% polyester to prevent wrinkles and minimize the appearance of dirt, dust, and other forms of discoloration. Furthermore, this noren fabric allows for greater privacy and is designed to last when used either outdoors or indoors.
Noren may be used indoors to create a partition between kitchen and dining areas, bathroom and corridor, or between living and work spaces. Why not use a noren to enhance your shops or restaurants, as is customary in Japan? Noren can even be used as decorative wall hangings as they require little tools for installation.

Koi Noren Curtain
Purchased this as a gift for my wife. She was so happy to receive it and the quality of the fabric is clearly something I would only expect to find directly from Japan. So happy to find this shop since we cannot travel to Japan right now due to covid.
Thank you so much for your quick shipping, amazing packing quality, and the fantastic noren curtain itself!
Would be 5 star if the writing was done more gracefully or, better yet, in Japanese characters.
Thank you very much for your review Janice, I'm happy to hear you like the noren!
