Featuring double action hinges so that the panels can fold in both directions. These shoji screens can be used as a privacy screen, room divider, sun shade or to hide computers, televisions, etc. and can then be easily moved and stacked flat against the wall when not in use.

History of Shoji Screens
The earliest surviving folding screens are Chinese. Existing Chinese screens, some of which are paper, date from the eighth century AD, although literary references date as far back as the Zhou dynasty (fourth to third century BC) and depictions of screens occur in Han dynasty tombs (200 BC-200 AD). However, it was in Japan that the screen form evolved into its most celebrated variations.
Japanese folding shoji screens served many purposes, being used for tea ceremonies, as backgrounds for concerts or dances, as enclosures for Buddhist rites and in outdoor processions. The type of folding varied according to its function. For instance, small two-fold screens were used for tea ceremonies, while large, gold-leaf screens with up to eight folds served as backdrops for dancing.
An emphasis on mobility required a structure that would be lightweight and flexible. A lightweight but strong core was produced with a lattice of a stable wood covered with many layers of paper applied in a specific sequence to produce traditional shoji screens.
We have been offering shoji screens since 2006 and have sourced many Asian and European suppliers that provide high quality durable screens at affordable prices. We are confidently the UK's No.1 shoji screen retailer.
