About our Noren and Art
Noren 暖簾 are traditional Japanese fabric dividers hung between rooms, on walls, in doorways or in windows.
The natural Linen has been batik resist dyed to create the circular moons. The deep blue has been submerged in the indigo vat over twenty times to achieve its colour. Varying shades of blue extend out of the white centre revealing the gradation in the dye process.
The batik process uses beeswax to form a resist on an area of the fabric where the indigo dye cannot permeate. The rest of the fabric takes to the indigo leaving the waxed area white when removed. The work requires much time, patience and love to complete.
The moons came about after long nights of dyeing, with the full moon providing light and inspiration.
Lillywong.art and Kiiro
Co founder Lilly is a practising artist, showcasing her art pieces through Kiiro. The large moons can also be found on a smaller scale in Kiiro’s homeware collection.
