The name Iroshizuku is a combination of the Japanese words Iro; 色彩 (Coloring), expressing high standard and variation of colors, and Shizuku; 雫 (Droplet), that embodies the very image of dripping water. Each ink name derives from the expressions of beautiful Japanese natural landscapes and plants, all of which contribute to the depth of each individual hue.
