Request for Bespoke Tanzaku-Kake from a German Japanese‐Style Painter
Kakejiku designed for exhibiting tanzaku/an artistic paper board is called ‘Tanzaku-kake’ whose strings attached to its main part are utilized for fixing a tanzaku. The kakejiku has a feature which is to enable you to admire multiple tanzakus on the single hanging scroll by changing those pieces.
We take an order for bespoke tanzaku-kake and ever since we introduced this offer on an article, the influx of requests for the work has been being received from all over the globe.
Here is the article.
The topic this time is about one of those orders which was from Germany.
The customer is a Japanese-style painter portraying her work on a tanzaku or a shikishi/a square paperboard to sell after fixing them onto either a tanzaku-kake or shikishi-kake.
According to the customer, although she was happy with finishing her pieces with an off-the-peg tanzaku-kake or shikishi-kake at an earlier time, the idea of using these kakejikus which are the best match with her works started growing on her and then she spotted us through her search for a firm offering bespoke orders.
Our original plan was having the consultation in person at our shop as she was supposed to visit Japan for other reason in April, 2020 but it was cancelled due to covid -19 pandemic and we proceeded the order online.
The picture below shows all tanzaku-kakes we made. We were in charge of jaw-dropping 36 orders in total… The view of them all lined up is just magnificent isn’t it?
We designed these kakejikus with variety of styles hoping they can enhance artworks of the customer.
Straight after we made those kakejikus, we sent them to the customer then we found that she kindly posted the images on her Instagram, the completed kakejikus with her works being fitted.
The customer appears to be pleased and that makes me feel delightful.
As well as requests for off-the-peg tanzaku-kakejikus, we take bespoke orders for the kakejiku of this kind too like the episode this time.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any inquiry regarding this type of kakejiku.
