Flowers have always been a popular poetic subject dating back to ancient Japanese history. What better theme for Sailor’s next bottle ink, aptly named: the Sailor Manyo Ink Series. Based on popular flowers frequently mentioned in Japanese “Manyoshu” – an anthology of compiled ancient poems, Sailor has chosen eight dye-based ink colors to best represent this vibrant palette range.This series will only be made available to Sailor’s international market. This means there won’t be any Japanese domestic distribution made available – signifying Sailor’s nod of support to their overseas distributors. The Manyo Bottle Ink Series is NOT a limited production and will be available as a standard series. The Manyo Bottle Ink Series will be bottled and presented in the new Sailor 50mL square-bottle.
