Suminagashi (“ink floating” or “flowing ink paper”) is the earliest form of Japanese marbling that originated over a 1,000 years ago.
The marbling designs resulting from the Suminagashi technique was much admired. At some point in history, the Japanese royal court embraced Suminagashi as a worthy courtly activity.
Historically, the ink colours used in Suminagashi were of natural tones. The colours were applied to a Japanese paper called “washi”. Later in history, Suminagashi designs were applied to cotton, hemp and silk fabrics.
