The Write Session | Bloggers’ Meet at William Penn

TBI was one of the few (lucky) bloggers invited to attend a Blogging/ Writers’ Meet hosted by William Penn, in Bangalore. The experience was amazing, to say the least. To be able to learn the history of the company and the different brands, it was enlightening. And of course, we got to test the world’s most expensive and exquisite pens!

PENS AS A FASHION STATEMENT

The world of fashion has welcomed pens as an accessory with open arms. A beautifully crafted designer pen often adds that much needed elegance to your outfit, and completes your look. Pens are no more just a writing instrument; they have become a symbol of prestige and refinement. Pens were once upon a time considered an accessory for older men only. That doesn’t hold true anymore. Penmakers around the world have recognised this fact and now make pens for young entrepreneurs too. Move over, Watch; the Penn is here (no pun intended).

ABOUT WILLIAM PENN

The brainchild of Nikhil Rangan, William Penn was first established in Bangalore, India in 2002. The first store in Koramangala,  was conceived as a walk through format stationery store to sell premium products. Seeing the magnificent response that they received, William Penn decided to expand. They opened the first walk in showroom in 2004, in The Forum Bangalore. In the years that followed, William Penn carved a niche for themselves in the history of Indian retail by introducing more than 20 stores across India. Their showrooms showcase popular international brands like Caran d’Ache, Mont Blanc, Fisher, Lamy, Sailor, Shaeffer and many more, the likes of which had not hit Indian stores till then. As Ms. Anita, the organiser, told us at the Meet yesterday, William Penn focuses on bringing to Indian markets ‘affordable luxuries’, and they have lived up to their promise.
