Rippled Indigo Hemp Noren Curtain
Noren are Japanese curtains or doorway covers, coming in longer or shorter lengths. Either covering the full width of a doorway or floating in the middle – acting as a still divide and providing psychological transition between spaces.
Kaya fabric was traditionally used in Japan from the middle of the 1700s as mosquito netting. It's usually produced in naturally dyed indigo, over-dyed indigo, brown and natural undyed. All naturally dyed hemp fabric colours will fade overtime, shifting into beautiful muted tones.
