The Timing to Remount
Dirt / Stains
Dirt or stains may occur in a “kakejiku” (hanging scroll) due to various problems with how it was stored.
Dirt or stains will get worse if you ignore them, and then a precious work will be spoiled.
Creases result from repeated rolling and unrolling of a kakejiku.
They are the cause of friction in the fabric or the main work as well as exfoliation of the pigments.
Holes made by worms
Worms may eat through a kakejiku due it being kept in a bad storage environment. We can replace the mounting fabrics of the kakejiku, but it may be very difficult to repair the main work.
Tears / Holes / Breakage
Severe damage may cause tears, holes, or breakage. They need repair.
