The pen is launched in three colors, each reflecting one of natures elements: the greenery of nature, the endless blue sky, and the variant shades of red earth.
The Asia Bamboo Collection is available in fountain pen only, limited to 138 pieces each color and is presented in a special limited edition collectors gift box matching the color of the pen.
