Jun Gifts: Noren

Jun Gifts: Noren

Noren are Japanese hanging cloth curtains or room dividers. They also hang in doorways. You may have seen them in a Japanese restaurant at some point. Jun Gifts has a huge selection of noren ranging from really quite beautiful to not so much so. If you have an apartment, as I do, which at one point had large doors dividing the space and no longer does (pocket doors in Victorian era homes for instance) you can use these to separate the space. They can also be used as curtains or just wall hangings. I especially enjoy the indigo dyed noren. This company also has a large selection of furoshiki (piece of cloth to wrap packages or your bento box in), yukata (generally cotton kimono-style garment), daruma, and so on.
