Manufacturers of beautiful writing instruments for well over a century, KaWeCo is a long-established brand by an innovative company known around the world for its attention to detail and focus on tradition. The Heidelberger Federhalterfabrik (dip pen factory) was originally opened by Luce and Enßlen in 1883.
Here, wooden dip pens were produced, with fountain pens and golden nibs later imported by Morton, New York. In 1899, businessmen Heinrich Koch and Rudolph Weber, took over the factory, setting up production in Handschuhsheim, just outside of Heidelberg, where products with the brand names Perkeo, Omega and Kaweco were produced.
The year 1912 saw the founding of the Kaweco Sport, a patented pocket fountain pen for ladies, officers and sportsmen. This new Sport series introduced the first fountain pen to come with a cap, making it ideal for travelling. It is this series we carry here, at shop.thisglamorous.com, along with a few other great Kaweco writing instruments.
The ALGARVE Birkin Wicker Basket Bag is inspired by English-French actress, singer, songwriter, and model Jane Birkin. This style is slightly smaller and narrower than some, making it perfect for traipsing around and about the city or the countryside on weekends. It is entirely handmade for us by artisans in sunny Spain.
