Brass Products

BRASS has a somewhat nostalgic feeling that makes you want to use it for years and years, as if it is something you cannot bear to part with. The longer you use them, the more beautifully your BRASS products ages, and the more different the textures it develops, until they somehow become a part of you. BRASS, an alloy of copper and zinc, has its own remarkable gloss, and has been used in architecture, furniture, hardware, arts and craft, and more since a long time ago. Over the years, its surface oxidises to become a deep, tender colour hue worthy of long appreciation. Some brass pens are painted, but the paint gradually fades as you use the pen, until the pen's brass appears to show its one-of-a-kind hue. Traveler's Company presents a wide range of brass stationery, from brass ballpoint pens to index clips.
