Caran d'Ache announces new limited edition collection
January 8, 2014: Caran d’Ache, the Swiss writing instruments maker, has launched a new collection of limited edition pens which look to the East for inspiration.
The Caran d’Ache Fountain Pen Bamboo honours the Bamboo plant, which is an enduring symbol of consistency, longevity and loyalty in Asia. Limited to 10 exclusive pieces, this writing instrument is crafted from solid gold. The clip of the pen is intricately carved to resemble a bamboo shoot, while the button is set with a Chrysoprase, a soft-green, semi-precious stone that represents renewal and self-confidence.
Caran d'Ache Fountain Pen Harmony is inspired by the teachings of Feng Shui, an integral part of the Chinese Culture. The pen favours the shape of the Bamboo plant, and enveloped in vibrant red Chinese lacquer. Following Feng Shui, the writing instrument favours the number 8 – representing good health and opulence. The writing instruments are thus limited to 888 exclusive pieces in the world.
Symbolising wisdom and inner peace, Caran d'Ache Buddha Silver Medium Fountain Pen is dedicated to Buddha. This hand-crafted collection is limited to 108 fountain pens and 108 roller ball pens in the world. The entire collection has a distinctive finish in 800 solid silver, enhanced by a vivid lacquer of saffron.
The pens are available only at William Penn store outlets in India. William Penn also organises private screenings for interested pen connoisseurs.
