Experience the enchantment of bygone eras with our exquisite Traditional Dip Pen. For over a millennium, feather quills were the writing instrument of choice, until the advent of mass-produced metal nibs in the early 19th century. Our handmade dip pen beautifully blends the best of old and new, featuring a metal "flex nib" that caters to both calligraphy enthusiasts and everyday writers alike. To facilitate moments of reflection during your writing, we provide an ink stand, ensuring uninterrupted creativity as you craft your beautifully-scripted lines.
Choose from a captivating selection of feathers, including the sought-after golden pheasant, the whimsical lady Amherst, and the majestic peacock. Imagine penning your very own Hogwarts acceptance letter with the classic goose quill – a truly magical experience.
Each feather in our collection is meticulously hand-sorted for exceptional quality. The inclusion of a feather shaft adds a touch of old-world charm to this dip pen, while the assortment of steel nibs allows you to explore a wide range of lettering styles. Carefully handmade and elegantly presented in a gift box complete with a comprehensive selection of nibs, this set is not only a joy to own but also makes for a splendid gift.
Indulge in the artistry of writing with our Traditional Dip Pen set—a delightful fusion of tradition and innovation. Unleash your creativity, revel in the beauty of finely crafted script, and experience the allure of simpler times.
Ethically Sourced and Cruelty-Free:
At our core, animal welfare is of utmost importance to us. That's why we work exclusively with reputable European Processors who operate in accordance with EU Law. With these partnerships, we ensure that strict controls and checks are in place, providing thorough traceability and accountability.
We take great pride in sourcing our feathers ethically, ensuring they come from birds that have been raised and treated with utmost decency. Our commitment to ethical practices means that live plucking and force-feeding are strictly prohibited. In addition, we adhere to various certifications that require the birds to be afforded the Five Freedoms, ensuring their well-being is safeguarded. This includes freedom from hunger, thirst, discomfort, pain, injury, disease, and fear, as well as the freedom to express their natural behaviours.
Our feathers are sourced through two means: natural malting or as a by-product of raising geese and ducks for the food industry. In the latter case, even if we were to cease using feathers, the farming of geese and ducks would continue, and the feathers would simply go to waste. Instead, we ensure that the feathers are meticulously cleaned, sanitised, and recycled for the creation of our exquisite pens.
While we handpick our feathers for their exceptional quality, it's important to bear in mind that they are natural materials. As a result, slight variations in patterns and sizes are to be expected, adding to the uniqueness and charm of each individual feather.
Rest assured, when you choose our products, you can have peace of mind knowing that we prioritise both the beauty of our pens and the ethical treatment of the animals from which the feathers are sourced.
