Rainbow of Silk fountain pen

R3,850

Rainbows are magical (splitting white light into all that glorious colour), beacons of hope (e.g. Noah and his menagerie), of good luck (think leprechauns), of love, acceptance and of beauty, whether it is of the wild, riotous type (such as rainbow Colour Runs) or the soothing kind (such as watching a rainbow emerge after a thunderstorm). This pen represents all of this. And we adore it. The material is an in-house pour of multi-coloured resins embedded with ribbons of hand-painted silk.

This is a long, slender pen, with black finials and bronze rings at either end, and a double bronze and resin ring at the start of the cap. The cap is not a flush fit which means a) we have been able to make a smooth transition between the barrel and the grip section with hardly any ‘step’ in between and b) when you screw the cap on it automatically seals against the end of the section and in doing so creates a little sealed compartment for the nib which prevents the nib drying out.
