Kyoto Ink


Born from a collaboration between stationery shop TAG and Kyoto Kusakubi Laboratory (a specialist in colour dyes), these inks are made in Kyoto following traditional Japanese dyeing techniques dating back to the Heian era. Expressing a rich ancient history dating back over 1000 years, these beautiful water-based inks are a joy to write with.

Kyo-No-Oto and Kyo-Iro fountain pen inks are made in Kyoto, Japan using traditional dyeing techniques. The colours are inspired by famous and fascinating places in Kyoto which are the expression of its rich history and profound culture for a long time.
