Are the shoji screen custom or prefab? If prefab, who is the manufacturer?

The problem with prefab shoji is that the builder must build to the size of the shoji, not the other way around. Makes for a real issue if it's a remodel and you aren't building everything from scratch...
If there are existing openings, the shoji must be custom built to that size.
Another big issue with the pre made shoji sold on the internet is that they are made in a factory. No one is taking the time to make sure the stiles and rails are straight or that; if they are curved, that both doors (or more) are curved in the same direction. If bi-passing doors are curved toward each other, they will hit when you slide them.
Pre-made shoji are made as cheap as possible. They almost always have the cheapest shoji paper substitute which is a laminated paper; ( .020mm thick), like Ty-vek. Never is tight on the kumiko grid and expands in heat. Or worse, they use "syn-skin"; a fiberglass material that is porous and has a low light translucency. It also is not really washable and the pores collect dust.

One other way a prefab shoji could be used is in an "over the opening installation".
This is where the shoji is mounted on the wall in front of the opening. Using a valance box with the track inside or using the barn-door type track hardware. It's not perfect, but if the opening is near the size (smaller!) than the shoji it's-self, it may work well. I always size my custom doors to have a 1-1/4" lap (bigger!) on each side for privacy. More or less may work out...

It looks to me that the plant materials are more for a part shade environment. Some ferns can take quite a bit of sun though depending on what zone you are. I have grown the Alaska Fern in sun with good success. You have to make sure it's well watered though. It's hard to identify all the plants in that area but if you have some more examples of what you like I can let you know if it will work in sun conditions. I hope this helps.
