From Switzerland’s Caran d’Ache, the Chromatics collection features 12 new shades, each presented in a cleverly designed package. The glass bottle has the company’s signature hexagonal shape—seen everywhere from its classic 849 ballpoint pens to its contemporary RNX.316 series—topped with a polished chrome cap. The base of the bottle is angled, causing the ink to settle into the narrow corner for easy filling even when levels run low.
Note: This drop includes two 50-milliliter bottles of ink. At checkout, you’ll have your choice of colors between Cosmic Black, Delicate Green, Divine Pink, Electric Orange, Hypnotic Turquoise, Idyllic Blue, Infinite Grey, Infra Red, Magnetic Blue, Organic Brown, Ultra Violet, and Vibrant Green.
Caran d’Ache takes its name from 19th-century French illustrator Emmanuel Poiré’s pseudonym, which itself was derived from the Russian word for “pencil” (karandash) and the Turkish kara tash, which refers to black stone or graphite. The company has produced fine inks and writing instruments in its founding city of Geneva since 1924.
