Sailor’s Manyo inks range is named for ‘Manyosyu’, the ‘Collection of Ten Thousand Leaves’, which is Japan’s oldest and most revered anthology of poetry. It comprises over 4,000 poems written over a period of 400 years by people from all walks of life from emperors to farmers. Flowers are particularly relevant in Japanese culture and 1,500 of the poems relate to them. Sailor therefore decided to name the Manyo inks after flowers mentioned in this epic, centuries-spanning collection of poems.
Each square glass bottle contains 50ml of dye-based ink, suitable for use in all fountain pens.
