The Huzhou writing brush, Hui ink, Xuan paper and Duan ink stone are “four treasures of study”. In the late 18th century, the Huzhou writing brush was introduced to Suzhou from Wuxing, Zhejiang. After improvements were made by generations of writing brush craftsmen, the Huzhou writing brush gradually formed its unique features of sharpness, tidiness, roundness and strength.
