Pure Pens Ink - Cwm Idwal

£6.25
SKU:

The Pure Pens Ink range was first launched in February 2018. The idea behind the ink was to provide a high-quality series to customers, which was affordable, and also told a bit about the company in the process.

With Pure Pens a proud Welsh company, developing Celtic-themed inks seemed entirely befitting. Many of the inks tend to sit in between other ink producers' main colours, giving fountain pens another unique palette to add to their collection.

Cwm Idwal is a hanging valley in Snowdonia with a picturesque lake at it's bed. It was designated as a world heritage site in 1991 and was voted as the 7th greatest British natural wonder by the Radio Times in 2005.
Cwm simply means valley in Welsh (something Wales is synonymous with) and Idwal comes from the name an ancient King of Gwynydd.

The colour is a dark, murky green. It also has a blue hue too and is similar in colour to the depth of a moutainous lake. The ink has good shading too, like the other inks in the Pure Pens Celtic Collection.

Cwm Idwal joins the Pure Pens 'Saltire' Blue ink with a layer of reddish sheen.

The ink comes bottled in a retro-shaped 60ml bottle, which is hand-filled, hand-labelled and hand-sealed!

VAT and Currency

UK customers should see prices including UK VAT on each product page. It may take a few seconds to load the Inc and Ex Vat prices due to how our system has to be set to work for overseas customers too. If only one price is showing, it will be the EX Vat price and may be due your IP address displaying as overseas.

All prices are shown in British pounds (£) but you can select other currencies in the top right dropdown. You can pay in your own currency and you will know the exact price you'll pay on your card. You will probably still have to pay some form of import duty to your local tax authorities when your parcel arrives.

For deliveries in the UK, Royal Mail suggests 1-4 working days for parcels to arrive. 
For deliveries in Europe, Royal Mail suggest 7-10 working days for parcels to arrive.

If you find that your order has taken longer than the suggested delivery time, before you contact us please ensure that you have checked with your local sorting office to see if they have your order. They will not always leave you a card to inform you that there is a parcel waiting for you, but you can generally call them and they can advise if your parcel if it is there. 

In the case that your order has been returned back to us because it was left unclaimed or the delivery address was wrong or incomplete, it will be the customers' responsibility to pay for rescheduled delivery.
