Kaweco originated in 1883, when the "Heidelberger Federhalter Fabrik" ("Heidelberg Dip Pen Factory") was founded. Since then, tradition and craftsmanship have been non-negotiable. No matter how hard it has been for the company at times, they would never give up the “Kaweco DNA” that is distinctly present in every pen they make. This means that their products are consistently based on their historical models, that have proven themselves to be trustful companions in every day life, over and over again: they are robust and durable with a functional, minimalistic design.
As a family business rich in history, Kaweco has some clear values that have persisted through the years: the manufacturing process and quality control still lay in their very own, skilled hands in Nuremberg, Germany. This production process is monitored with good care for quality, ethics and sustainability, alongside with entrepreneurial durability: the company also attaches great importance to long-term employees and partnerships.
Although Kaweco stands for tradition and heritage, the brand has successfully translated and deeply intertwined their history and the nostalgic design of its products with modern technology. They took the fascination Kaweco pens attracted back in the old days and translated these values to today’s refined and increasingly demanding times.
