Have you ever wished to decorate your Japanese embroidery designs in a traditional and authentic way? If so, we have a great option for you. We are introducing a Japanese Kakejiku tailoring service for your finished embroidery. Kakejiku is a Japanese hanging scroll used to display and exhibit embroidery, paintings and calligraphy inscriptions and designs mounted usually with silk fabric edges on a flexible backing so that it can be rolled for storage. This item is made by the artisans in Japan which JEC and Kurenai-kai, Japan have been collaborating for several decades. They have tremendous knowledge as to how to treat and mount embroidery to washi and silk fabric and which mat fabric type matches your embroidery. Most of the kakejiku that you see at JEC and kurenai-kai are made by them. Wishing to deliver the true Japanese craft, we would like to proudly introduce this to you!
If you don’t feel comfortable enough to send your embroidery via package, please hand to JEC staff in class.
