Handcrafted Traveller Pen Cases From Barcelona


Recommended Posts

Hi to all,

I'm an artisan specialised in hand-crafted watches and leather accessories from Barcelona and I'l like to introduce my new series of Traveler Fountain Pen Pouches.

As a keen traveller I've always carried in my bag the travel journal along a bottle of Iroshizuku ink and a Lamy. For a while I just had both the pen and the ink inside a plastic, zip bag but started to wonder how could I keep my pen in a more stylish way, specially if I took with me not the Safari but the M1000 or the Falcon...

So after few iterations and thousands of km travelled I'm really happy with the result:

The outer layer is made out from genuine Horween Chromexcel horse hide leather, incredibly durable and with a beautiful pull-up effect and patina. Available in Black, dark Brown and Burgundy (No 8) they are to my opinion one of the best leathers to work with, really supple, silky and durable.

Regarding the lining I use only the best Spanish goat leather which is incredibly smooth, available in a wide range of beautiful colors and will prevent the pens's plating or lacquer from rubbing/wearing.

Then when it comes to stitching, I only do saddle stitching by hand using the highest quality waxed thread again in any colour (although I recommend to match the stitching with the lining for that "extra quality").

The picture attached features a Chromexcel Dark-Brown pouch with violet lining and fucsia stitching tailored to fit the M1000 but you can order yours in a generic size or request the case to be tailored to fit an specific pen at no extra cost (since all the unique pieces are crafted as ordered, there is no difference for us between tailored or generic size other than versatility to hold a range of pens).

You can purchase them directly through my Etsy store or just contact me at info@monotimepieces.com for any combination that doesn't appear on the page

Kind regards,

Very nice. Thank you for sharing!

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
