Quality since 1838 — From the beginning to a global brand.
Our company's history begins with a small farmhouse outside the city gates of Hanover, where the chemist Carl Hornemann (1811 – 1896) prepared coloured inks. Hornemann had two significant traits that characterized his undertakings and marked him out as a visionary: Scientific expertise and a great deal of passion. Together, these made for a powerful gift that successfully wrote history.
Our customer magazines are dedicated to our philosophy that inspires us every day: passion. We combine fascinating writing instruments with a modern lifestyle and are delighted to present ourselves to you in a new light. How is ink actually made? How individually do people write in other cultural settings? And what does the “art of the nib” mean? We would like to invite warmly you to become familiar with our unmistakable handwriting – share our passion and discover our world of handwriting culture.See more
