Simply designed for maximum practicality, the Sonnenleder “Karasek” Double Pen Leather Case, Mocha Brown keeps two of your precious pens protected and ready for use. Using a water hardening method, the leather is transformed from soft and supple to a firm and structured case, guarding a pair of fine writing instruments much more stylishly than a plastic or paper box. Secured with a straightforward self-tab closure, the case is easy on your pocket or bag as well, with no metal parts to snag or rub. Offered in a dark chocolate brown, with continued use the case will mellow into a lustrous jewel, your fingers rubbing sustaining oils deep into the leather fibers, and even a splash of water or a tight grip helps develop a lasting and protective patina.

Celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, Caran d'Ache has been refining the craft of pen-making for years. The company was founded in Geneva, Switzerland in 1915, by Arnold Schweitzer, and named after Emmanuel Poiré, a famous French illustrator, who went by the pseudonym Caran d'Ache. Harvesting natural materials from the mountains of Switzerland, Caran d'Ache started as a small pencil factory. Over the years, the company gained widespread acclaim for its unparalleled technical quality and craftsmanship in writing instruments, upholding the same high-quality standards as the Swiss watchmaking and jewelry industries that grew alongside it. Today, the tradition of excellence lives on, with each product subjected to strict quality control and environmentally responsible processing.
