Product Description

In the late Meiji era, new colors were born with the creation of chemical dyes. "Shimbashi" is the name of a place found in Tokyo. The bright, bluish-green color was popular among "Geisha" in Shimbashi as it was fashionable and trendy.

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.
