Huzhou writing brush culture enjoys a long history and rich connotations.
It's the epitome of oriental traditional culture and also a brilliant chapter in the history of Chinese civilization. The Huzhou writing brush culture's abundant heritage stems from its long history of development, exquisite craftsmanship, numerous varieties and specifications, and the good will and strong promotion and wide application by great calligraphers of all ages.
