In Italian called "Inchiostro Ferrogallico", a dark ink born from the alchemical relationship between nature and science. 100% bio, water-based, made with oak galls locally sourced and ground by a Dutch paint mill built in 1781.

In the Middle Ages, two types of black inks were usually used: carbon black and iron-gall ink. Gallic ink is been used since the third century and was used by the likes of Leonardo da Vinci, Johann Sebastian Bach, Rembrandt van Rijn, and Vincent van Gogh.

Safety note: keep ink out of reach from children.
