Taccia Ukiyo-e inks are inspired by the works of the artists who pioneered the Japanese Ukiyo-e art movement - Hiroshige, Hokusai, Sharaku and Utamaro. Each artist has four inks dedicated to some of their most famous works. The Hokusai inks and packaging are inspired by the 36 views of Mt. Fuji, which was a series of landscape prints by Hokusai in the early 1830s.
Koiai is a deep blue with a hint of sheen and strong contrast in the shading. Produced in Japan, the inks have been created by Hiroshi Ishizu, an ink sommelier and Hanae Matsumoto, a colour consultant.
