Sumi – Japanese Ink for Calligraphy

The practice of calligraphy is a meditative process that begins with the preparation of the ink. The ink is ground on a stone together with water. The proper preparation of the ink is an important step on the meditative way of writing. We offer ink in its traditional form, in a solid block, or as a ready-to-use bottled liquid.
