Tansaku Kake Scroll

This is a scroll for a bonsai artist in New York. It is a tansaku kake scroll so the artwork can be switched out. It is not embedded.

It is a benberugu cloth that is light brown, with a raised pattern (敷け?) I really like the pattern, it is soft and simple. I completed the scroll with a Plastic ivory jikusaki and Takuboku hanging string.
