"Factory Green" is a Traveler's Company limited edition collection of some of their favorite brass writing instruments redesigned with a light teal green brassing coating. This series was inspired by a shade of green paint that is commonly used in manufacturing plants, on industrial printing presses and along the floors, doors and shelves in many factories in Japan. One example in particular comes from a well-used shelf in the Traveler's affiliated Design Phil Nagareyama Plant that has been used to store a large number of printing ink cans; over the years, the paint has faded, chipped and stained in certain spots and just as a Traveler's Notebook does, has become an embodiment of time, work, memories and journeys. The Factory Green coating that comes with this series is meant to echo the idea that history lives within our objects.
Brass Pencil - Factory Green. This is a pencil made in an old press factory located in Japan. This product consists of two parts, the brass made holder and the actual pencil with an iron cup. When this is not used, the pencil fits inside the holder, transforming into a compact “carry around” size. This portability makes the item great for travel.
The pencil and eraser refills are now available as a set, so you can use the pencil for a long time and enjoy how the texture of brass ages with use.
