Herbin inks are made in France and is the oldest name in pen inks in the world.
The original J. Herbin was a sailor, and from his many journeys to India he brought back to Paris formulas for manufacturing sealing wax and inks.
In 1798, Jacques Herbin, the 4th generation family scion, relocated the workshop and commercial establishment to Rue des Fosses-Saint-Germain-l'Auxerrois in Paris. Today, Herbin produces a range of beautiful fountain pen and calligraphy inks, writing instruments, gift sets and accessories. , and the finishing touches on the bottles are still done by hand in Paris.
These inks are for wordsmithing, hand lettering, writing, calligraphy, drawing, and art.
