Japanese noren is a traditional piece of fabric used as a curtain or doorway in stores, restaurants or homes. This small hanging is usually between 90 cm and 150 cm long and is hung at the entrance of the establishment. Noren are often decorated with distinctive designs that may represent the name of the store or the company logo.
Noren are often designed with materials such as cotton or silk and can be plain or printed with colorful designs. They usually have one or more vertical slits cut from the bottom to the top of the fabric, allowing for easier passage or viewing. Noren are also useful for controlling the amount of light that enters the facility, creating a subdued atmosphere inside.
Japanese noren is considered an important traditional decorative element in Asia and is often associated with Japanese culture. Noren can also be used to signal the availability of an establishment, either by being open or closed. When closed, they can suggest that the establishment is closed or that customers should wait before entering.
