Forget me not – Papier Plume

Papier Plume is s stationery shop situated in the heart of the French Quarter in New Orleans. The company began its business in 2001 however the shop was opened in 2007. From what I see on google maps the shop looks quite nice.

Some time ago the company started to offer fountain pen inks. They’re supposed to be hand poured and bottled right in the shop. The inks are water based and described as french inks (imported? anyone knows french private label maker?). At the moment the inks are available in 15 colors and are sold in three bottles: small (15 ml), medium (30 ml), big (50 ml):

I’ve received samples of fourteen colors and I’ll review them soon. The full line consists of:

Forget-me-not Blue is enjoyable blue ink with good properties. It’s not really exciting or unique but if you’re from New Orleans buy this instead of boring Pelikan or Waterman ink 🙂
