Inspired by the beauty, elegance and graceful character writing of the Chinese and Japanese languages.
The first signs of these beautiful artistic symbols date back as early as 57 A.D. Chinese characters were originally incorporated into the Japanese writing system through official document seals, letters, swords, coins, mirrors and other decorative items imported from China to Japan. It is thought that there are about 50,000 Hanzi characters in existence today. These imported logo graphic Chinese marks remain in the form of the divinely unique and delicately distinctive Japanese written word.
