Noren Curtain - 100% Linen Japanese Indigo Dye Awa Aizome (86 x 90cm) Gradation
What is Noren?
Noren are traditional Japanese fabric dividers hung between rooms, on walls, in doorways, or in windows. They usually have one or more vertical slits cut from the bottom to nearly the top of the fabric, allowing for easier passage or viewing. Noren are rectangular and come in many different materials, sizes, colors, and patterns.
Awa Aizome technique
Ai-zome is a method of textile dying using Japanese plants. The Japanese indigo dye is also called Japan Blue, and it is known as a natural dye along with the Indian indigo and the European woad.
The Awa-Ai 阿波藍, made in Tokushima Prefecture, located in the Shikoku Region, is especially known for its vivid colors.
There are many indigo-dyeing studios in Japan, but those only using domestic products and traditional systems, such as the Awa-Ai and the Bushū-Ai 武州藍, are very rare.
