Japanese Noren

Wikipedia says that Noren (暖簾) are traditional Japanese fabric dividers, hung between rooms, on walls, in doorways, or in windows.These particular are made of 100% linen and I think they are a piece of art. How nice it would be to incorporate one in your home interior.

I think it would not only look good as a room divider, but it can be hung right on a wall as a textile art also.
