The name “Iroshizuku” is a combination of the Japanese words “Iro” meaning Coloring, expressing high standards and variation of colors, and “Shizuku” meaning Droplet, which embodies the very image of dripping water. Each ink name derives from the expression of beautiful Japanese natural landscapes and plants, all of which contribute to the depth of each individual hue. Enjoy the rich and subtle colors of Japan as you write.
