This deep grey-brown ink from the Kyo-Iro line of inks is called Stone Road of Gion, inspired by the stone-paved streets of Kyoto's Gion district. The city has a rich history, with traditions and aesthetics that have been inherited by Japanese ancestors. In Gion, one will appreciate the lovely Kyoto-style houses, the river flowing along the stone roads, and perhaps see a traditional geisha-san or apprentice maiko-san. 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.
