The oldest name in ink production, J. Herbin was first established in 1670 by an enterprising sailor armed with sealing wax formulas from his travels in India. After designing specialty ink formulas for French luminaries like Louis XIV and Victor Hugo, the company became synonymous with high-quality writing supplies. Featuring a water-based formula that uses only natural dyes, J. Herbin ink is nontoxic and pH neutral. The ink runs smoothly and dries quickly on the page, and for added convenience, the bottle comes with an integrated pen rest.
Note: The base price is for five 30ml bottles of standard ink in your choice of colors. At checkout, if your desired color is not available in choice #1, check in #2, #3, #4 or #5. For an additional $3 per bottle, you can choose scented ink in your choice of colors. Quantities are limited.
These naturally scented inks are made from floral water (or hydrosols) of rose, orange, lavender, apple, and violet. Inspired by a tradition that began in Italy in the 19th century, J. Herbin sources its hydrosols from Grasse, France: a Provençal town known for its perfume industry and the floral scents born of it. Formulated without pigments, these inks are particularly well suited for use with fountain pens.
Shipping Ink in Cold Weather
Because all fountain pen inks are water based, it’s possible they may freeze during transit. If your ink arrives frozen, simply wait until it has thawed to use it. However, as the ink freezes and expands, there is also a risk it will cause the glass bottle to break. We recommend those living in colder climates exercise caution when ordering this time of year.
