What SUMI?

SUMI represents ink in Japan. It has been used to record Japan's history since ancient times, dating back to the mythological era. Even today, it is used in various forms of art such as paintings and manga.

SUMI is also meaning about the corners. We handle items that were once tucked away in the corners of Japan, offering a collection of somewhat niche items.

Additionally, SUMI refers to the color black. It embodies the diverse aspects of Japan's personality - the history preserved in numerous traditional crafts, the cute culture represented by places like Harajuku, and the anime and manga culture that continues to produce popular works. All these different shades come together to create a wonderful SUMI.

May it be a delightful SUMI.
