The byoubu is the Japanese folding screen adorned with beautiful paintings. They are used ostensibly to separate spaces and create some privacy...but are also a way of displaying lovely art.
We took inspiration from the Japanese byoubu and made our own privacy screen for the shop's credit/debit machine keypad. We didn't paint this. Just recycled some fabric from kimono scraps.
We used to make a conscious effort to look away as customers key in their PINs. Now, we don't have to! :-)
We hope the little space created to protect your PIN is comfy and pleasant!
