Established in 1924, Caran d'Ache is a symbol for Swiss precision and quality. It remains Switzerland's one and only manufacturer of writing instruments and fine art materials. Caran d'Ache ink bottles are unique in shape and design, their weighty construction and thick bottom prevents tipping, and their shallow inkwell provides easy access to ink. The stable structure and shallow inkwell is ideal for dipping pens. Caran d'Ache fountain pen inks are available in 9 beautiful colors, each resembling colors of the earth.
