In collaboration with Japanese pen company Sailor, stationery store KINGDOM NOTE created several unique lines of natural inks that can be used with a traditional fountain pen. While putting pen to paper by hand might seem like a dying art, these two companies are giving people a reason to buy inkwells, paper and pens once again.
In the past, collaborations between KINGDOM NOTE and Sailor resulted in the creation of ink sets that used inks from mushrooms, birds and insects. Moving forward, the newest bottles of ink also turn to nature, but rather than looking to the land and air, the two companies looked to the sea.
Colors like giant spider crab red, Japanese crayfish blue, coconut crab brown, Japanese tiger prawn brown and fiddler crab light green are the five new colors that will be launching on September 23, which is also recognized as National Fountain Pen day in Japan.
