Pelikan is an established German luxury writing instruments brand and company since 1838. The company was founded as an ink and paint factory by a chemist, Carl Hornemann in Hannover, Germany in 1832. Today, Pelikan is one of the market leaders and pioneers in the fine writing instruments industry worldwide. This brand stands for reliable writing instruments with a wide product range. We are conscious of tradition and resort to decades of experience, because, whether it is a fountain pen, a rollerball pen or a ballpoint pen, one writing instrument is not like the other.
