When visiting Japan last year I often came across these paper strings hanging at Shrines and Tempels.

I was told it was bad fortunes. When the japanese visit the Tempels and Shrines they often buy a fortune note. If there is good luck on the note, they keep it. If not, they hang it somewhere.

For me as a textile designer I find it fascinating that different kinds of patterns often appears. It is very beautiful.
