Máté Bikfalvi, the owner of Pennonia, shares thoughts on the ink colour: Pennonia Csillánt is a deep green ink. Its name translates to Nettle in English and the word itself is actually a regional variant of the "proper" Hungarian word "csalán". The name for this ink got inspired by my childhood adventures in the garden and at my cousin's place where we used to play out in the fields and always got stung by nettles. Good times! As for choosing "csillánt" over "csalán" it's simply because after moving to Budapest it made me realize that I don't want to lose my dialect.
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.
