Produced in Heidelberg, Germany where the family company was founded in 1930, Lamy is now a significant brand leader in the world of writing instruments because of their unique design and high-quality standards and craftsmanship.
Manufacturing over 8 million writing instruments a year, a plethora of Lamy’s productions are created in co-operation with internationally renowned designers and design studios. One of Lamy’s most recognisable designs is the Safari which was unveiled in 1980; little did anyone know then that it would one day be one of the best-selling fountain pens in the world!
The ergonomic design and sturdy workmanship means the Safari is perfect for the needs of schoolchildren but it quickly won over many adult writers too. The release of special editions colours and finishes every year for many Lamy ranges including the Safari and AL-Star, means that the brand has an almost cult following of fans looking forward to the next big release.
