Turn water into rich color with Saiboku Aya ink sticks. Made by Japanese artisans and formulated with bright, permanent pigments, Saiboku Aya are traditional inks for the 21st century. They're used just like normal sumi ink sticks: by rubbing them against a wet inkstone to turn clear water into thick, saturated ink. It's a meditative, magical experience, and you're not limited to black.
Try using Saiboku Aya for drawing, painting on watercolor paper, and hand-lettering with brushes or dip pens. Scroll down and see all the color options, plus a curated selection of accessories and paper that pair perfectly with these elegant inks.
