This deep pink ink from the Kyo-Iro line of inks is called Cherry Blossom of Keage. The lovely mauve hue of this ink is inspired by the breathtaking sight of springtime cherry blossoms arching over the train tracks at Kyoto's Keage area, called 'somei-yoshino'. The Kyo-Iro inks are excellent for fountain pens and dip pens, as well as other ink media. Because the inks are produced in small batches, the color may vary slightly from one bottle to another. Each bottle holds 40ml
Kyo-Iro is a line of inks made in small batches that are a collaboration between the Kusakizome Lab and TAG Stationery in Kyoto, Japan. Kusakisome refers to a traditional dyeing technique that is often used for dyeing textiles like kimonos. The inks are inspired by famous places in Kyoto and celebrate its rich history and profound culture.
