From Bungbox, a specialty stationery store in Tokyo, these free-flowing inks are meant to emulate the colors of a sweet potato: One is the reddish purple of the potato skin, while the other is the golden orange-yellow of the flesh inside. Both have a lovely sheen and excellent shading properties, and together pay tribute to the long history of sweet potatoes in Japan, which dates back to the Edo period (1603 – 1868). The labels are drawn using the two colors, and offer a glimpse at the ink within. This import was arranged directly with the owner of Bungbox, and is available only on Massdrop.
Note: This drop includes one bottle of Sweet Potato Purple Omaezaki and one bottle of Sweet Potato Yellow Omaezaki. Limited to 66 sets.
All orders will be shipped by Massdrop.
Estimated ship date is Aug 14, 2017 PT.
After the drop ends, payment will be collected and the group’s order will be submitted to the vendor up front, making all sales final. Check the discussion page for updates on your order.
