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 Kinkakuji golden temple known as the "Temple of the Golden Pavilion" (金閣寺) in Kyoto Japan. A woman gazes out at the temple across the reflecting pond that surrounds it.

Kinkaku Temple is a Zen Buddhist temple located in Kyoto, Japan - one of the 10 most populated citied in the nation. The temple is an official UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site and one of the most popular tourist destinations in Kyoto. First constructed in the 12th century as a home for shōgun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, the 3-story temple is designed in the recognizable, finely detailed style of Japanese architecture of the time. The temple's most unique feature, and arguably the reason the site is so famous, is the genuine gold leaf coating that covers the entire first two stories of the outside of the structure.

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