Máté Bikfalvi, the owner of Pennonia, shares thoughts on the ink colour: Admittedly this brown could have been called quite a lot of things. I chose chestnuts specifically for two reasons:
1. When we were kids we used to collect chestnuts for fun when they were in season (like sacks of them) and we’d race who can throw them the furthest or make dolls out of them using match-sticks! Good fun!
2. My sweet hometown of Nagykároly has a beautiful avenue with enormous chestnut trees which are really beautiful when they are blooming.
Note: Bottles shown are 50ml, however, Pennonia has recently switched to 60ml bottles! They're just a little taller but share the same qualities as the 50ml bottles.
All Pennonia inks are created by hand using high-quality ingredients, precise measurements, and a pinch of passion for writing and inks to bring you, vivid, beautiful colors to write with. They are designed to work flawlessly with your favorite writing instruments, offering a smooth, pleasant writing experience. Pennonia inks can also be customized with different color shimmer powders based on your preference.
Each bottle is hand-labeled using Clairefontaine Clairmail 60 g/m2 white paper and the bottles themselves are pharmaceutical-grade amber glass bottles to protect the inks from UV light. The bottle's wide mouth is excellent for filling any kind of fountain pen and reduces the chances of accidentally tipping them over when filling.
