Herbin is the oldest name in pen inks in the world. "La Perle des Encres" (The Jewel of Inks") was created in 1700. "L'Encre des Vaisseaux" ("Ship's Ink") was produced at an unknown date before then.
Today, Herbin produces a range of beautiful fountain pen and calligraphy inks, writing instruments, gift sets & accessories. Herbin inks are made in France, and the finishing touches on the bottles are still done by hand in Paris.
