Product Description

In the Meiji era, Purple had been considered a noble color used by the aristocracy. Since people were afraid of using Purple, "EBICHA" was often used instead of traditional Purple. EBICHA had become a popular color for Hakama (Japanese traditional pants) intended for female students.

The "MEIJI NO IRO" series is a beautiful selection of colored inks which were inspired by popular colors from the Meiji era of Japan. Each color has a history that originates from that era. Please enjoy using this ink, and be reminded of the old days of Japan. It can be used with fountain pens, glass pens, dip pens, etc.

Kuretake Co., Ltd. was founded during the Meiji era (1902). Now, in 2022, in commemoration of the 120th anniversary of our founding, we carefully chose 6 colors of ink, reflecting on the Meiji era 120 years ago.
