  • Upgrade Your Fountain Pen

    There are few things in life that truly surpass the joy of writing with a fountain pen. The feel of the nib as it glides across the page. The way the pen itself makes you slow down and consider your words more carefully. More than any other tool, it is
    a trusted friend that can accompany you for years, if not a lifetime. If you’re already a fountain pen fan, then you may think it’s time to upgrade your fountain pen. Both aesthetically, and in terms of usability, there is huge variety out there,…

  • Soothing Stationery For Relaxing Writing

    Imagine yourself sitting in the shade by a gorgeous villa, looking out to sea. The endless horizon reminds you of the first line on a clean, crisp page in a brand new notebook. You take a sip of an excellent wine, remove the lid from your favourite pen,
    and start to write… We don’t know about you, but amidst the daily grind, we often find our mind drifting to a ‘happy place’ where we have the time, energy and inclination to sit down and write that novel we’ve been dreaming about. Even…

  • From Me To You: Tackling Cancer One Handwritten Letter at a Time

    1 Comment
    There are few things in life as valuable as a handwritten letter. Whether you’re sending or receiving, a personal note written in the unique script of a friend or loved one is something to be treasured. Even if your scrawl is more ‘scribble’ than

    those cheap plastic biros and investing in a family heirloom. Anyone who is lucky enough to have received one knows that a stylish pen is a treasured gift. It sits at a lower price point than a watch or silverware, but serves a similar function:…

    1 Comment
    Recently we went on a tour of the Pelikan factory and museum in Hanover, Germany. Having learnt so many interesting facts about their brand history and heritage we thought it’d be rude not to share! Pelikan History Pelikan originally started life
    as a water colour and ink specialist. Founded by Carl Hornemann in Hanover, Germany, in April 1838, the factory quickly became renowned for its inks. Günther Wagner came to work for Carl Hornemann as a chemist and workshop manager in 1863 where he…
