Caran D'ache Leman Terre D’Ombre Ballpoint
For over 100 years, Caran d’Ache has been sublimating color through writing
instruments that have become essential. Léman Terre d'Ombre, the latest addition to
the collection, embodies all the mastery and poetry inherent in the
company's creations. With its timeless color, two iconic styles and two elegant sizes,
this special edition meets everyone's aspirations. While the standard model boasts a
modern cap decorated with curling guillochage, the slim model is entirely adorned
with a raw umber colored lacquer.
The addition of mother-of-pearl in the lacquer gives this deep khaki green a delicate
nuanced finishing, encouraging the user to reconnect with the essentials in life. A
color which has always appeared in the palettes of the greatest masters, and has always
been part of Caran d'Ache's palette. Known to fans of de Neocolor® I and II,
Supracolor® Aquarelle, Pablo®, Prismalo®, Neopastel® and Museum Aquarelle
under the number 049, the colour “raw umber” symbolizes balance and serenity. It
reflects Swiss nature, its dense forests and its rocky mountains.
For over 20 years, the Léman Collection has been inspired by the beauty of the Swiss
landscape. A collection that combines all the House's emblematic know-how: the art
of lacquering, polishing and guillochage. Writing sublimated thanks to the expert
hands of master craftsmen who combine to bring an unequalled brilliance, softness to
the touch and relief to the material. A delicate interplay of light and shadow that will
appeal to lovers of fine writing who appreciate bold design. Shiny varnish highlighting sublime
shades of khaki green, trend color 2023. The fountain pen nib is hand polished rhodium plated 18K available in F,M and B. Léman Terre d'Ombre is also available in a twist action ballpen and a slim all lacquer model.
