The Laban Rosa Fountain Pen Series are small pens that feature vivid colored bodies. They're based off of Neoclassic architectural columns and have a perfectly round pen barrel. Moreover, the threaded cap is adorned with a sleek triangle clip. Each pen is made from colored translucent acrylic resin which makes them very lightweight and a great choice for first-time fountain pen users.
Lilacs represent the coming of spring and longer daylight hours. As the seasons change from winter to spring, there's a sense of hope and new beginnings in the air. The Laban Rosa Fountain Pen - Lilac combines bluish-purple, subdued green, and light gray to mimic the colors of lilacs blooming in spring.
These fountain pens are compatible with standard international cartridges or converters. They are tipped with German-made gold-tone nibs that are engraved with Laban’s logo and “3952,” the height of Taiwan’s famous Mount Jade.
About Laban: Founded in Houtong, Taiwan, in 1981 by two brothers, Laban began with simple silver- and rhodium-plated fountain pens and soon expanded into more ornate and hollow-carved writing instruments. Their design history includes an international collaboration with the Musei del Vaticano in 1997, a limited-edition 22k gold Dragon Pen that was recognized as the Best Writing Instrument of 2004 by the Royal Academy of Arts, and the Lacquer Mento series that won Pen World’s Reader’s Choice Award in 2011. While Laban is widely regarded as a pioneer of unique pen-making techniques, the brand truly emphasizes “the original intention” of the fountain pen: an instrument held in the palm of the hand and used to express unique warmth and affection.
