Yatate is a Japanese travel writing set that has been in use mainly since the Middle Ages. At first sight it resembles a pipe and consists of a case with a brush and a small container for ink, in which silk or cotton is placed to hold the ink.
In the KAMAKURA TIME(1185-1333) cotton and silk began to be used in the ink containers. In the EDO TIME (1603-1868), red copper, an alloy of copper and gold, was also used for the production of yatate, which thus acquired a natural patina over time.
