Yuzen is a batik-like method of painting using a paste, then dying the piece, revealing the design once the paste is washed away. The paste was used to create a tree on this noren, which is a curtain traditionally used to separate rooms in a doorway. This piece is double-sided. It can be used for it's original purpose, or as a wall hanging.
A pipe-pocket at the top makes for easy hanging on a curtain rod or dowel.
