Traditionally, Sumi is produced from a combination of pinewood soot, animal glue, and perfume. A common misconception is that the final product is a liquid, when in fact the ink is only the result of rubbing a solid ink 'stick' against an inkstone with water. Thus, the original production of ink sticks requires a painstaking process of thoroughly mixing the raw ingredients before kneading and shaping them in wooden molds. The aging process can take from a few months to several years.
Studio D'Artisan once again pushes the boundaries of Sumi, this time combining this quintessentially Japanese dye with a heavyweight Sashiko fabric base.
