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 geisha women in traditional garb performing with musical instruments. A geisha (芸者) - also known as a geigi (芸妓) or geiko (芸子) depending on the region - is a type of female traditional Japanese performer. Originating sometime in the Edo period (1603 - 1868 AD), these recognizable performers are classically trained in arts such as music, dance, hosting, singing and other similar talents. There are still a number of Geisha who perform in Japan's urban centers to this day.

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