History of Noren - traditional Japanese fabric dividers
In the first place Noren were face of shop with dyed logo or family crest on the fabric.Because of being exposed to the eyes of many people, people in those days kept Noren very carefully. 
The city of Kyoto at that time, there were so many housing that has been called " the bed of eel”. That’s why Noren were essential for this type of housing.This is not only preventing the house visible from the outside. But in winter it's for protecting from cold wind, and in summer it's to generate coolness by Noren’s swinging by the wind. Noren were closely related to people’s lives.
As years went by, we rarely can find Noren at home.Just because of that, fashion and function of the Noren do not mean they are no longer needed. Rather, Noren have atmosphere of calm and a sense of healing, and it would be necessary to our modern life. In addition, Noren would be match with our modern life and bring us sense of warmth.
Because in our modern life it is easy to forget the old tradition, we would like to recommend living with Noren.
