Scroll Weights-Fuchin

スクロールの重み

One accessory always used when displaying Japanese scrolls or kakemono are called “fuchin” ( scroll weights). A pair of these small, tasseled weights can be hung on a scroll’s bottom end-rollers. These small weights help to hold a slightly “curled” scroll into a somewhat more straightened position. Plus, scroll weights also add a finishing touch to the hanging scroll itself.
