The special thing about this Chinese calligraphy set is the fact that there is no need for ink, paint or paper: instead, the user writes simply with water on fabric. When the water dries, the fabric returns to its original appearance. The environmentally friendly set consists of a large case with panels opening laterally. It holds a wooden box with three drawers which accommodate the necessary tools. In accordance with the design, bamboo, pine and Chinese plum flowers are used for the boxes, which are decorated with figures representing Far Eastern garden scenes and iconic flower symbols.
