Nine Japanese Noren

We stumbled on the traditional Japanese noren the other day when we were gathering Curtain Space Dividers from Apartment Therapy and Beyond. We're now smitten with the flat, two-panel textiles and have gathered a few more for your reference...


1 a beautiful four-paneled noren at Brooklyn textile gallery Sri Threads
2 Cherry Blossom Noren from VivaTerra
3 a mod fabric noren on Whip Up via Curbly
4 an in-depth tutorial on how to make your own at Janome
5 a printed noren by Supercozy


6 a Hello-Kitty-print noren on Ebay
7 Asagao hand-painted noren from Marcopoloni
8 Sakura hand-painted noren, also from Marcopoloni
9 a white-on-white natural fiber stripe from Dharma Crafts

We think norens are a perfect tried-and-true small space solution. Their flat, spare design makes them a streamlined addition to small apartments and their multi-purpose use means they'll work time and again whether your need is for a gauzy window covering, door panel, or room divider.
