Five Pen Pouches to Consider

High-quality pens require proper storage. Not only is it safe to carry your pens in a pen pouch, but it is also exquisite. The jacket pocket may seem convenient, but it’s not a very safe place, and the chances of ink stains ever getting out of your clothes are pretty low. That’s why, today, we’ve rounded up five pen pouches of different sizes and designs in which you can store your beautiful pens.

Graf von Faber-Castell Epsom Pen Pouch for 1 Pen

Graf von Faber-Castell has made a reputation for the quality of their writing instruments and their pen pouches are no exception. This one in beautiful shade of cognac brown is made of Italian calfskin, a material that is highly appreciated by leather experts for its excellent quality and properties: it is tough but supple, attributes that make it perfect for any kind of fine crafting products. What makes this leather so special is its grainy texture and if you own other leather accessories from their range like the letter opener or perhaps the Desk Pad, you’ll find they complement each other beautifully.

S.T. Dupont Atelier Brown Pen Case

The French are quite famous for their savoir-vivre and when it comes to living life well, no one does it better. And for good reason. While searching for these pen pouch options, I came across this gorgeous-looking case in brown by S.T. Dupont. Made of natural vegetable calfskin leather beautifully painted brown with a patina effect, it fits perfectly into a business outfit and can be paired with your belt or even your shoes of the same colour, of course.

Montblanc Sartorial 1 Pen Pouch Foldable

This one takes the form on an envelope and it has such an interesting and slim design. Crafted from the finest Saffiano leather according to the highest standards of quality, this pen pouch is the expression of modern elegance. It can fit one writing instrument the size of Meisterstuck Classique or LeGrand and what’s cool about it is that with the pen inside, it takes the shape of a triangle, whereas when it is empty, the sides can be folded and it becomes flat, thus taking up minimal space. Personally, I prefer thinner pen cases because of their portability, even more so when they look classy.

Caran d’Ache Leman Turquoise Pen Holder

Looking at this pen case, I can instantly imagine myself bathing in the turquoise waters of Sardinia. Made of velvety calf leather in a bright shade of turquoise, the pen fits any Leman pen and has been especially designed to match all leather items in the collection. From the neat stitching to the beautiful texture of the leather, you can recognise the Swiss craftsmanship.

Visconti 12 Pen Case

Large collections require even more space and for that we’ve selected a special case from Visconti. Made from fine leather with a sturdy construction to keep your pens safe inside, this case is the perfect option for those who want to carry around as many pens as possible. Having a closer look at the zipper pulley, I noticed that it is actually made in the shape of a Visconti nib, what a cool detail, I must admit!
