Yu means hot water in Japanese and refers to the bath.
The noren is a split curtain usually hung in the entrance way of a Japanese restaurant as an easily traversable divider between inside and outside.
In addition to its function as a portal, the noren serves to identify the premises by way of its design, or simply delight guests with its artistry.
Noren tastefully enhance any interior with their simple beauty and practicality - whether actually used in doorways between rooms or as a wall hanging.
Lovingly made in Japan.
