Iroshizuku Ink


Regular price $25.00 Sale

An intense saturation of color that writes in clean sharp lines and floats out of a fountain pen onto the page. Perfect for fountain pens, dip pens and other ink media. Available in four colors. Each ink name derives from the expressions of beautiful Japanese natural landscapes and plants, all of which contribute to the depth of each individual hue.

Deep green or Shin-ryoku
This shade of green conjures the unchanging color of a dense evergreen forest in a long winter.Gray black or Taki-sumi

Take-sum has been used in Japanese homes since ancient times as a water purifier, to control humidity levels, and for its healing properties. The black emulates the deep, rich black of take-sumi, so familiar to the Japanese.

Orange red or Fuyu-gaki
The color of the persimmon has been long used in Japan since around the late Heian period. This shade of orange conjures up the image of a lusciously ripe persimmon.

Bordeaux or Yuma-budo
Crimson Glory Vine embodies the bright and ripe fruit of the wild, yet subdued crimson glory vine.

The name Iroshizuku is a combination of the Japanese words Iro (Coloring), expressing high standards and variation of colors, and Shizuku (Droplet), that embodies the very image of dripping water.
