We would like to welcome you to the friendly atmosphere of our colourful store. We are based in the eclectic Kemp Town area here within the vibrant City of Brighton & Hove, UK.

We can offer you expert advice on Oriental Art, its cultural roots, traditions and historical significance. Our knowledge is based on many years of experience both in China and in the UK. We can also offer one-to-one classes in Chinese calligraphy and recommend local teachers of painting – for a little more information, please see FAQ section.

We carry a large stock of exclusive oriental gifts, ornaments, figurines, Feng Shui items, art materials, reference books for Chinese paintings & calligraphy books, tattoo reference books, prints, and original modern paintings from China and the Far East.

As specialists in Chinese art, we carry an extensive range of traditional artists’ painting tools such as Xuan paper, brushes, Chinese ink, Marie’s colours, and material associated with Chinese brush paintings. We also offer classes in Chinese painting and calligraphy to suit all abilities. Please contact us for more details.

For recreational purposes, we stock a large selection of Chinese games that include beautiful sets of Mah Jong and wooden pieces for Chinese Chess in a variety of sizes, and the ancient game of ‘Go‘ popular in both Japan and in China.

We have a specialist consultancy service in which we can forecast your personal Chinese horoscope, give you basic Feng Shui guidance, and also provide other types of readings. Our consultation fees are calculated on a basis of subject and length of time required, these to be agreed and paid in advance.
