Aizome Indigo Dyed Linen Noren Curtain [B]

Noren are traditional Japanese fabric dividers hung between rooms, on walls, in doorways, etc. This Noren is individually hand-dyed with aizome indigo dye using only the 100% plant based natural materials, by our local Mashiko artist/dyer Waratani. The making process takes weeks to complete by repeating dyeing and drying to achieve the look.  

The fabric is a quality hand-woven Japanese linen and as it is the common feature of the Japanese Noren curtains, it has a vertical slit cut from the bottom allowing for easier passage. Noren can be enjoyed as wall art, like tapestry.

The gradient dye comes in two variations, this listing is for the "lighter indigo to darker indigo" but there is also "natural to dark indigo".

Due to the nature of handmade products, there may be small unevenness in the dyed results and also small variations to the images displayed in each product.
