Once upon a time, there was an octopus living in a pen store called Papier Plume.  He was a pen rest/business card holder, and a very good one. 

Late one afternoon as he was relaxing in the display case, something new was placed in his lap, a breathtaking fountain pen from Italy. Its name was the  Visconti Torpedo.
It was love at first sight.   

The octopus, so finely detailed down to the very last sucker, accompanied by his little fish buddy (or snack?) is part of the Jac Zagoory collection of solid pewter desk accessories.

The Visconti Torpedo fountain pen features a double power filling system, a unidirectional carbon body and palladium plated exoskeleton.  Palladium Dreamtouch™ nib.  Limited edition of 388.
Run away with the Torpedo!

What every pen-lover needs and secretly wants is a special place to store and/or carry their favorite pens.
Pen cases not only offer protection, they help prevent loss.  When your pen has a case, that's where it tends to stay when you're not using it.  A habit follows.  It's either there, or in your hand. 

Atelier de LaForêt is located deep in the forests of northern France, come these rich, enduring leather pen cases, handcrafted by master leather workers.

Available in 1-pen (large and small), 2-pen and 3-pen sizes as well as simple and convenient "Tulip" pen sleeves.  All in jewel tones, earth, sea, and sky shades, as well as black and white.
Above: Esterbrook "Estie" in Honeycomb with large single pen case in Mustard and the green "Green Mamba" Aura fountain/rollerball pen by Cleo Skribent.  Single pen case in Turquoise.
Atelier de Laforêt pen cabinets are built by hand, one-by-one, from sustainable woods.  This craftsmanship,  combined with clever details like angled handles and magnetic stops, become heirlooms to last generations.  In the US they can only be found at Papier Plume.

Below: The suede-lined collector's pen cabinets are made in 22-pen or 11-pen configurations with exteriors are paneled in the same fine leather as the pen cases in many of the same colors
Larger sizes are available, contact us for details.

ROSSI 1931
Since 1931 when Antonio Rossi founded the Florence based company, the Rossi family has made classic Italian stationery, ranging from the pure traditional Florentine pattern of the Renaissance era, to relatively modern patterns and motifs sourced from antique epherma.  The fold-overs have simple gold or bright borders, and the single cards are of heavy cardstock with embossed borders and deckled edges, and of course the de rigueur lined envelopes.

Rossi's wrapping paper, like most made in Italy, is the same high quality and fine weight of their stationery paper and the Italians would never purposely tear it.  Think of it more as a craft paper which can be used for covering presents, then reused.  In the long run it becomes quite cost effect with much less waste.

Above: A classic vintage Rose pattern features single cards embossed to frame the sender's words.  Deckled edges and lined envelopes complete the impression of classic elegance. In two sizes.
