Caran d’Ache pays homage to the fine arts in its “Chinese calendar” collection, designed to bring the legend of the symbols of the Chinese zodiac to life. The latest creation, the “Year of the Dog” limited edition, carries on the tradition of this collection of exceptional writing instruments to celebrate the advent of the Chinese Year of the Dog in 2018.

In the Chinese zodiac, the dog symbolises loyalty, integrity and devotion to just causes. Its profound intelligence, sensitive soul and alert mind often make it the defender of universal values. A loyal friend and reliable travelling companion, this pathfinder for peace brings balance and harmony to the world. Favourable to stability and positive change, the Chinese Year of the Dog promises the union of the very best energies.
