The Japanese style door curtain (noren; 暖簾) originated as a way for Japanese shopkeepers and homeowners to protect their space from dirt and weather while still allowing fresh air and light into the premises. Noren curtains are often used in outdoor doorways where they double as a form of signage for businesses. They are also hung indoors to divide spaces while providing some degree of privacy. Visit our blog to learn more about the history of the Japanese noren curtain.

This traditional Japanese noren features a bold woodblock-style graphic of two Japanese koi fish () swimming upstream towards a waterfall. The image featured on this noren curtain is inspired by an ancient Japanese legend that states that a koi fish that is strong enough to climb the waterfall will transform into a mighty dragon at the top. This legend is closely linked with some of the traditions associated with Children's Day in Japan.

As is custom, the Koi Fish Graphic Noren Japanese Door Curtain is designed with a center split in the fabric to allow for easy passage through doorways.
