Now you can make your own Japanese nobori-like banner or wall hanging. This type of banner could be found on fishing vessels to celebrate the new year as the fishermen would hold ceremonies to pray for their safety and abundant catches.
The symbols are all auspicous including treasure boats, cranes and turtles (the symbols for long life and good fortune) fish and other seafood. Kanji characters representing abundant or large catches were also displayed.
This lightweight panel is ideal for quilting and measures approximately 39" side width by 43" long (across the bottom - the longest side shown).
This panel is also available in a red colorway.
