Herbin 350th Anniversary Logo

Celebrating 350 years of Herbin

Herbin 350th Anniversary Poster

Manufactured in the heart of Paris since 1670, Herbin® has been a name recognised for its exceptional quality of inks and waxes which are exported all over the world.

Originally a manufacturer of sealing wax, The Herbin® brand was established by a Mr.  Jacques Herbin in Paris. It is from his travels in India that the founder imported his formula of shellac which allowed him to advance the quality of his seals, in adherence and finesse, and to acquire a professional reputation internationally. In 1798, the company went on to create a line of writing inks.

To celebrate 350 successful years, we have launched a range of limited edition inks and gift sets. These incorporate a collection of vintage wax capped ink bottles, available in the first five colours launched by Herbin®: black (Perle Noire), blue (Bleu Myosotis), red (Rouge Caroubier), green (Vert Réséda) and violet (Violette Pensée).
