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. 

Featuring workwear details such as the ribbed collar, cuffs and waistband hem, the slim fit silhouette of the sweatshirt delivers a modern feel to this classic piece. Paneled pit construction give a very functional aesthetic to the sweatshirt.
