Inkstone

Shiyan in Chinese, suzuri in Japaness, inkstone allows smooth inkstick grinding and its flats and corners are used to reset the brush point. That's why it is important even with liquid ink. Avoid cheap greyish inkstones found in art supplies shops as they are too coarse and ruin ink and brush quickly. The Luowen stone is recommended to start, then a Duanyan, or Duan inkstone, the grain of which is incomparably subtle and offers a deep feeling of beauty

Other accessories

Like a little piece of furniture the rosewood portico or stand allows brushes to dry and makes a nicely decorative set. Not to be missed also are paperweights, brush holders, water droppers, brush mats, etc.

Writing sets

Offering a writing set was always a nice idea of gift in China. But most of the ones seen today in Western shops or online are not suited to be used, just looked at. That's why we have designed and ordered special honest boxes from good makers that can be used both ways.

Seals

Up to these days in China and even more Japan, signing can be done only with your personal engraved seal. Here you'll find a range of seal stones, accessories, and an engraving offer.

Paper mounting

Calligraphy or painting on paper have to be backed and mounted with special tools before framing: a "paibi", a "zhongshua" or a "hake" are strictly necessary.
