Shoji Blinds are based on Japanese Shoji screens but much simpler to manufacture. The rigid panels are fixed to a panel glide track and operated by cord or wand in the same wasy as a Japanese Panel Blind but the overall effect is of a Shoji Screen, diffusing light gently with excellent privacy.
Shoji blinds are popular in minimalist rooms, especially Apartments with a large expanse of glass to cover or as a room divider. Shoji blinds are also extremely affordable, unlike Shoji Screens and blinds can be removed easily, whereas screens are fitted permanently.
Using either traditional Japanese ‘Washi’ paper to manufacture Shoji Blinds or stronger material such as fabric, the effect is still authentic. Although the paper is fairly stong we wouldn’t recommend Washi paper if you have children or pets, so stronger materials that looks very similar to Washi paper can be easily substituted. In fact, a Shoji blind fitted as a room divider is ideal for families to section off living areas where toys are kept, especially when adults want to wind down in the evenings.
