Making of a Japanese Hanging Scroll

Asian Hanging Scrolls
Tokyo, Japan

Calligraphy and/or Sumi-e hanging scrolls are made from the thinnest of Xuan or Mulberry Paper. This type of paper is better known in the West as Rice Paper even though there is no rice in the paper. It is wet mounted and then put on silk brocade. This is an extremely tricky process and requires many steps and much skill. The process has been in existence for centuries in China and Japan.

Below is a lovely video showing the process.
