Xuan paper

Orchid has been part of daily life in China and Japan for over two millennia. The cultivation of the orchid is sacred. In Asia, the relationship between humans and plants is different from what we have in the West. This flower is the symbol of virtue, simplicity, courage, charm, elegance and above all grace. It is an ideal of life for both the Chinese and the Japanese. The leaves are strong and dynamic, the flowers are soft and fragile. The orchid symbolizes both the feminine and masculine character.
