Herbin is the oldest name in pen inks in the world. "The Jewel of Inks" was created in Paris in 1700.

Herbin uses all natural dyes in their fountain pen inks. This natural composition is reflected in the very neutral pH of the inks.

Violette pensée (Pensive violet): this color is also a flower from the very same name.

Since Napoleon I, French pupils used violet ink color, the least expensive color. This ink was made of methyl-violet, also used to disinfect wounds.

Each tin contains 6 standard international ink cartridges compatible with most fountain pens (other than those that use proprietary cartridges).

Designed for high portability. Be sure to carry a few spare cartridges and you will never have to worry about the pen running dry in the middle of a writing session.

This ink is safe for fountain

The prettiest purple I know of

I own at least 10 purple inks.
This is a true violet, and the most beautiful purple ink I know of. Very saturated and vibrant, perfectly behaved.
