Sailor Momiji Limited Edition Maki-e Fountain Pen
We received a special shipment of specialty collector fountain pens from Sailor including some made with special woods, Urushi lacquer and some Maki-e works of art. We're not allowed to advertise all of these and they'll only be here during February, but come in the store or call or email us and maybe you can have that fountain pen unavailable anywhere else!
What is Maki-e? 'Maki-e' is a highly respected traditional Japanese hand-applied decoration process with more than 1200 years of history. It is regarded as the top of the Japanese decorative crafts on many different materials. Precious materials such as Gold, Silver, Enamel, Abalone shell (mother of pearl) etc. are combined and applied by hand by specialized accredited artists with traditional Urushi lacquers to represent a variety of traditional Japanese art and culture. These very traditional techniques can only be applied by truly experienced Japanese craftsman who have historical family skills in such traditional art form, a true heritage in craftsmanship.
More? Maki-e combines intricate lacquer painting with a variety of surface gemstones. Typically Japanese designs inspired and created by well renowned artists are skillfuly portrayed using natural Urushi lacquers and other precious materials. The result is a most unique and magnificent surface treatment to be enjoyed by generations to come. Sailor's top range of Maki-e pens are created in collaboration with only the most skilled artists in Japan and are often introduced as limited editions such as:
