Dusky Purple Fountain Pen Ink

All Kyo Iro inks are handmade in Kyoto, Japan using traditional dyeing techniques and materials.

Dusky purple refers to a dull sooty cherry color with a light ink tint. In the "Kokin Wakashu", it is written that "If the cherry blossoms in the fields of Fukakusa bloom in my heart, this year alone will bloom in ink." It is a song that calls on the cherry blossoms to bloom in an inky color, with the feeling of mourning for the deceased .

"Kyo no Oto" is a series of writing inks that reproduce traditional Japanese colors that have been used since the Heian period with modern techniques and interpretations. Each color features a unique name and story.

This is a dye ink developed independently by TAG STATIONERY and Kyoto Kusaki Dye Laboratory, which consists of dyeing and weaving experts.

It is a characteristic ink that makes use of the gradation of light and shade using the bleeding characteristic of dyes.

Dye ink is soluble in water, so after writing with ink, you can use it for various expressions such as "blurring" or stretching the color thinly with a water brush.
