Shaozhiyan Chinese Brush Store

Add:298 Zhongshan Rd M.

2012-11-09

Chinese people invented a special brush to paint and write on semi-transparent rice paper. The quality of brush directly influences the quality of calligraphy and paintings.

Shaozhiyan Brush Store uses more than 70 procedures to make brushes, and the shop has been in existence for 150 years.

The small store only sells brushes, rice paper, ink and ink slabs, but if you are looking for an authentic Chinese souvenir a brush is a pretty good choice.

The store is trying to enlarge the market by tailor-making special items such as brushes made of a couple's hair, which in Chinese custom symbolizes a strong romance, and also brushes made of a newborn's hair to commemorate the birth.
