Tama Noren Handmade Bead Doorway Curtain

Traditional Japanese space divider

You would think that the abacus would have disappeared completely by now but not in Japan: it's still in use among craftspeople and merchants of traditional goods and this is the reason the city of Ono in Hyogo Prefecture, a few miles north of Kobe, still has many workshops that produce them, following a tradition that goes back over 400 years. And since they have developed an amazing know-how about wooden beads, it was only a matter of time until their creativity found other outlets too, like the Tama Noren Handmade Bead Doorway Curtain.

A different spin on the noren curtain used by traditional restaurants or shops, the Tama Noren Handmade Bead Doorway Curtain uses strings of wooden beads instead of the usual fabric to create a beautiful and effective space divider. It comes in two colors (beige and brown) and is 150 cm (4.9 ft) long and 85 cm (2.8 ft) wide). Although not exactly what most people normally think as Japanese in style, these curtains are elegant pieces of traditional craftsmanship that will become the center of attention in any space!
