Coccoina Glue Stick
This elegant glue stick with a pleasant marzipan scent tells a bit of stationery history. In 1927, Italian businessman Aldo Balma invented a new unbreakable aluminum packaging for solid glue in order to compete with the common glue sold in glass jars at the time. The ingenious aluminum can featured a brush holder in the middle of the can with a brush that could deploy thin layers of the glue. With the addition of a sweet almond scent, the glue quickly became popular and eventually a staple in Italian and European schools and offices.
The Coccoina glue in the aluminum can was used widely in Europe in the 50's and is a nostalgic item to this day for many people. The iconic almond scent brings one right back to their childhood memory of using the glue in the can with a brush. Now in convenient stick form, the Coccoina glue is easy to use and environment friendly. The acid and solvent free glue is non-toxic and water soluble, making it easy to wipe away excess with water and safe around children.
