TWSBI - Pure Pens

Ross Adams |

After manufacturing for other companies around the globe for over 50 years, it was decided they would produce pens for themselves and so TWSBI was born. The company had extensive experience of working with metals and plastics, from toy parts to high end writing instruments. This gave them all the knowledge to create every component TWSBI has to offer.

TWSBI's name stands for the phrase "Hall of Three Cultures" or "San Wen Tong" in Chinese. The character "Wen" translates into language and culture. The phrase "San Wen Tong" also brings to mind the Hall of the Three Rare Treasures created by Emperor Qianlong as a memorial to three great masterpieces of Chinese calligraphy. The initials of the phrase "San Wen Tong" was reversed and thus turned into "TWS". The last letters "Bi" was added with its literal meaning of "writing instruments". Thus combining the two segments, creating TWSBI.

TWSBI's writing instruments are forever expanding with them often asking for customer feedback to help decide on new colours of pen designs.

As well as producing fountain pens TWSBI have more recently put out a wider range of inks, proving just as popular.
