Noren are the traditional Japanese cloth dividers that hang in the doorways and windows.
Working with stitch resist and immersion dyeing, master noren artist Yoko Kano has worked on two major projects creating noren for the towns of Katsuyama and Naoshima, Japan. Yoko arrives from Japan with her daughter Kazuho to introduce this traditional Japanese art form to western audiences.
