Onitsuka Tiger was inspired by Sumi for their Fall/Winter 2010 apparel and footwear collection. They introduce the technique with the video here above.

“Following on from SS10, The Sumi collection for Autumn/Winter takes its inspiration from the monochrome colour palette and the age-old Japanese art form of Calligraphy. Sumi refers to Japanese charcoal and black ink, which are represented in the latest Onitsuka Tiger range by black, grey tones and subtle ink drop patterns.”
