Announcement   This ink is made with real oak galls sourced under trees. Since it is made with natural elements, each batch may vary somewhat. The date on the label acts as a batch number, when the batch is gone there will be no more exactly like that. Though we do our best to keep the basic recipe consistent.

Thanks for visiting my shop. Hugo was my grandfather's name. The Etsy shop is named in his honor.

About

Unintentional ink brewer

In 2013 I decided to use some of the oak galls from my in-laws ranch in California's Sacramento Valley to try and make some ink. Why? Because it was there.

Didn't think much of the results but the ink started getting some attention from calligraphy students and professionals at the 2015 San Francisco Pen Show. They convinced me to make another batch.
