Sudare (sometimes called misu) were made of slats of decorative bamboo woven together with simple string. They could be either rolled or folded up out of the way.
Sudare are used in many Japanese homes to shield the veranda and other openings of the building from sunlight, rain, and insects. They are normally put up in spring and taken down again in autumn. Their light structure allows breezes to pass through, a benefit in the hot Japanese summers.
With the dawn of modernity, the production of sudare went into decline and became a traditional handicraft.
