About Pennonia Inks:
All Pennonia inks are created by hand using high quality ingredients, precise measurements and a pinch of passion for writing and inks in order to bring you, vivid, beautiful colors to write with. They are designed to work flawlessly with your favorite writing instruments, offering a smooth, pleasant writing experience. Pennonia inks can also be customized with different color shimmer powders based on your preference.
Each bottle is hand labelled using Clairfontaine Clairmail 60 g/m2 white paper and the bottles themselves are pharmaceutical grade amber glass bottles to protect the inks from UV light.The wide mouth of the bottle (4 cm) is excellent for filling any kind of fountain pens and reduces the changes of accidentally tipping them over when filling.
All inks carefully packed into, simple yet beautiful boxes to keep them safe during transport right until they reach your shelves.
About the color:
Pennonia Csillánt is another green and one of my personal favourites at that. Its name translates to Nettle in English and the word itself is actually a regional variant of the “proper” Hungarian word “csalán”. The name for this ink got inspired by my childhood adventures in the garden and at my cousin’s place where we used to play out in the fields and always got stung by nettles. Good times! As for choosing “csillánt” over “csalán” it’s simply because after moving to Budapest it made me realise that I don’t want to lose my dialect.
Regarding shimmer powders: If you decide to add shimmer powder to your ink order please note that these inks may clog your pen or make it hard to clean. Only use shimmering inks if you are willing to accept the downsides that come with it. We recommend using dip pens or fountain pens that are easy to disassemble and clean thoroughly.
