Dyeing paper with letters. The color of the ink, thickness and waver of the line, and depth of permeation... Carefully examining our spontaneous handwriting reveals many discoveries. Just as you choose your outfit based on your mood for the day, choose your stationery for your words and let your feelings guide you as you dye the paper. Presenting a new way to enjoy stationery culture from Kyoto's longstanding tradition of dyeing and weaving.
These days, handwriting feels like a nostalgic act. Do you remember how much fun it was to write with your favorite pens when you were little? We've noticed that this act of handwriting feels distant from us now. There's a gulf between us and handwriting. That's why we invite you to close the gap by using your favorite ink to handwrite with sincerity.
Fumisome ink is an unprecedented ink made with plant-based natural dyes. It features technology differing from conventional inks, producing naturally beautiful and gentle hues. Fumisome expresses the act of writing with ink as "dyeing paper with letters". Dye your feelings for that special someone. Dye them in beautiful color. Fumisome ink presents us with the opportunity to interact once more with the art of handwriting. Dye your feelings onto paper and communicate them to someone.
