Our ink bottles are shaped like droplets, drawing inspiration from potari, a Japanese word for a falling drop. Playful onomatopoeia are much loved in Japan and are expressed through our inks, bringing a world of colour to life. Po. Torori. Tototo. Each whimsical name tells an imaginative story. We hope our inks will inspire you to create time for play.
We wanted to challenge the limitations of pigment ink and developed our own ink formula with pigment colour specialists Turner Colour Works Ltd. The result is a range of water-based fountain pen pigment inks that are easy to mix and resistant to clogging.
Once dry our ink won’t smudge easily with water, making it ideal for a variety of uses from addressing envelopes to drawing outlines for watercolour painting. On documents our ink offers more permanence than dye-based inks, especially when stored away from light.
