Laban was established in 1981 by John Hu and his brother Charles, with the aim of producing high-quality sterling silver and platinum-plated pens. Their range has an opulent feel, using luxurious materials such as leather, silver, wood and Swarovski crystals. Distinctive styles include the ‘Mento’ with its marble effect hand turned resin, and the ‘Maya’ with a sterling silver lattice. Laban produces one of our bestsellers, a sterling silver ballpoint pen with a traditional fluted end. Laban takes international refills.
A mighty pen with significant proportions, the Laban Mento resin is ideal for those who prefer a chunky pen. The translucent and slightly iridescent surface is made from hand-turned Italian resin, ensuring no one pen is exactly the same. The Mento is available in a fountain pen with a choice of nibs from fine to broad, and is presented in an impressive gift box with one black ink refill. Takes international short cartridges.
A pocket pen in pretty jewel like colours, the Laban mini resin is ideal for a handbag, with a compact length of 10cm. The translucent and slightly iridescent surface is made from hand-turned Italian resin, ensuring no one pen is exactly the same. Bestselling colours are the oyster blue and hot pink. The fountain pen takes international short cartridges, whilst the ballpoint accepts either Cross mini or Lamy Multifunction refills.
Laban has developed a reputation for good value sterling silver pens, hallmarked at the Birmingham Assay office. Classic styles include our bestselling ballpoint with traditional fluted end, and silver with a finely engraved line pattern. Laban combine silver with other luxurious materials such as leather, Swarovski crystal elements and natural woods. Perhaps the most striking pen in our whole collection is the Maya, with its silver latticework laid over precious resin. Silver pen sets also available.
Vintage cool. The distressed effect brass barrel and industrial design lend an air of steampunk to this Laban fountain pen. The spring loaded clip, curved grip and excellent weight make this pen an extremely practical addition to your stationery drawer.
A bold cigar-shaped profile epitomises the Laban Taroko giving a distinguished statesmanlike appeal. Named after the stunning National Park in Taiwan (the country where Laban is made) and meaning &lsquosemicolonmagnificent&rsquosemicolon in the local Truku dialect, these pens certainly live up to their moniker.
