Description

Folding screens are no longer the everyday furnishing they once were. These days, they are mostly used at seasonal festivals as backdrops for dolls and helmets or, in the case of gold foil folding screens, to adorn weddings and other ceremonies.
They can also turn that kimono and sash you wore on that special day, that special line of calligraphy or writing, that special picture or that treasured piece of embroidery or textile into a folding screen for you.
Here at Kataoka Folding Screens, we work to take folding screens, with which most people only rarely come into contact, and give them a new, contemporary vitality, creating news ways for them to imbue interior spaces a sense of “wa”, or harmony.
We do not limit ourselves to fitting Japanese-style rooms, but ply our trade on Western-style rooms and even in ways of decorating unencumbered by space.
A kind of peculiar variety known as “trick folding screens” are also part of the long tradition of folding screens. As they clack along, their designs change in fascinating ways. Visitors from other countries are frequently amazed and delighted by this, taking this unique experience back home and telling it as one of the highlights of the trip. We also held a workshop where you can try your hand at making your own trick folding screen. By all means, please join us.
