BENU is proud to introduce their marvelous new collection of pens, Talisman. This collection is inspired by great legends and the mystical beliefs that surround talismans, amulets, and other magical items used to bring luck, protection, money, love or special abilities.
Whether you are an avid believer in the magical power of plants, stones, herbs, and crystals, or you remain skeptical to this mysterious and unknown world, there indeed lies a sprinkling of curiosity and intrigue within each of us. Believer or not, we can all admire the fabulous myths and ancient beliefs behind these good luck charms.
We invite you to step into this hypnotizing realm of folklore and see for yourself if there is any truth to be found beneath the fables. Who knows, perhaps this fascinating magic might make its way into our modern world!
The Talisman collection is made complete with 5 pens, each named after a special substance: Mandrake, Dragon's Blood, Peacock Ore, Fox Gloves, and Edelweiss. Drawing inspiration from certain tales of yore, we set out to convey these stories not only in the color and style of each pen, but by actually infusing a part of each substance* into the five different designs.
Native to Western Europe and with its tall, striking spires set beneath dozens of impressive finger-shaped blooms, the extraordinary foxglove flower carries with it an abundance of tales that claim to set the origins of this mystifying plant straight.
One folk myth suggests that mischievous fairies gave these little bell-shaped flowers to foxes to wear on their paws, enabling them to sneak silently into rural villages. Another explanation of the name's origin lies in the fact that in the 14th century, fairies were nicknamed "good folk' - and according to author Maud Grieve, the prefix "fox" most likely stems from the word "folk". Whether the name originates from this legend that tells of gloves given to foxes by crafty fairies, or it is merely the result of a mispronunciation of the phrase "folk's glove", it is said that carrying on your person a foxglove will bring about good luck and fortune.
In the mortal world, fairy gardens have become quite popular, and foxglove is a must-have for attracting these mythical creatures. Placed on the front lawn and foxglove is believed to protect the occupants from evil influences, while picking foxglove from the garden and bringing it inside is believed to anger the fairies. But for the greatest benefit, it is recommended to place a piece of the foxglove flower inside a charm or talisman to keep the wearer protected and bring good luck.
So whether you believe in fairies or just admire these old tales for their mystery and magic, the Foxglove fountain pen is the ultimate fairy pen for you. Simply write with it and, who knows, maybe these magically mischievous beings will bestow onto you good luck and fortune.
