Herbin produces a range of beautiful fountain pen and calligraphy inks, writing instruments, gift sets and accessories. Herbin inks are made in France, and the finishing touches on the bottles are still done by hand in Paris.
Jacques Herbin is the oldest name in pen inks in the world.
“The Jewel of Inks” was created in Paris in 1700.
Jacques Herbin offers high quality inks for all purposes. All natural dyes are used to make Herbin fountain pen, calligraphy, pigmented, pearlescent, Authentic (or “Lawyer’s Ink) inks, and more. Jacques Herbin is also highly regarded and known for the ”1670” Anniversary collection of gold sheen fountain pen inks and the newly introduced “1798” Jacques Herbin collection of fountain pen inks with silver sheen.
Aside from inks, Jacques Herbin also has a rich history for manufacturing sealing wax. M. Herbin was a sailor, and from his many journeys to India he brought back to Paris formulas for manufacturing sealing wax. His special lacquer formula improved the quality of the seals in adhesion and neatness, helping him to become famous throughout the kingdom. Then as today, sealing wax was used for documents and correspondence, but also in decoration and bottling.
