This Tree Ring pen and wooden journal together make a perfect anniversary gift. Italian leather combined with the rustic nature of the reclaimed timbers from Italy's countryside makes for a journal experience that defies the bounds of exotic notebooks. What does "reclaimed wood" mean? - ancient lumber, hundreds of years old, is literally reclaimed from old barns and buildings in the Italian countryside, treated and then milled by Epica artisans in Florence before being handcrafted into these magnificent journals. That also makes for truly unique covers - no two are alike (we've provided multiple photos to illustrate their variety). To learn more about Epica and our incredible Italian artisan, Andrea, follow this link.
The combination of the reclaimed wood & gently distressed leather with a subtle marbling effect only adds to the grandeur of this Italian handmade wood journal. Crafting this piece with archival writing pages made even more incredible by its uneven hand-cut effect that leaves deckled edges, we introduce to you your next cherished family heirloom.
On the anniversary pen, the year that you were married along with you and your spouse's initials will be hand engraved at the corresponding annual growth ring. The Douglas-fir tree used to make this pen had sprouted in Western Montana in the late 1800's or early 1900's. The first year of the tree’s chronology is also included on the pen. In 2019 the tree was harvested as part of a forest restoration project. See restoration photo below pen photo.
This pen features a magnetic cap, and is made of high quality components. It comes with a premium rollerball cartridge from Franklin Christoph. The pen also comes with a beautiful wooden case for displaying both the pen and the information card describing the tree ring/natural history and forest restoration. Email us a photo of you and your spouse (send to firstname.lastname@example.org) and it will be included on the display card. Each pen is one-of-a-kind, and will vary in origin date and grain pattern.
“For our five year wedding anniversary, I wanted to give something unique and sentimental. The tree's rings are a history of its beautiful life and all that it has endured, for better or worse, over the years. A perfect gift to inspire, impress, and express appreciation for the memories made over time. Kim- San Diego (12/3/2010)” Read all testimonials at http://www.treeringpens.com/testimonials.php
