There are times when I want to type and there are times when I want to write in ink. Then I want a fountain pen that is snug and weighty in my hand. A pen that is such a gorgeous colour that it makes me smile every time I use it. When I couldn't find such a pen I created PLOOMS.
PLOOMS currently come in eight shades. These have been inspired by women who have brought a splash of colour into my life.
PLOOMS fountain pens are made of brass, chrome and lacquer. The dimensions are 137 x 14mm at the widest point, with a weight of around 47gms. They come in a presentation box.
PLOOMS fountain pens have a medium nib (or you can choose from medium or broad italic) and we provide you with 2 black ink cartridges. This is a standard size, so refills are easy to find. If you would prefer a converter so you can use bottled ink just let us know.
PLOOMS fountain pens are sent to you by first class mail. Free UK delivery. Cost per pen is £59.
All orders outside the EU may be charged import duties by local agencies.
If you are not happy with your PLOOM please return it to us in a saleable condition with the box and we will swap it or give you a refund. If there is a fault with your PLOOM we will refund postage

Miss Pickering Purple
Miss Pickering was the natural choice for a woman to inspire a colour for a new PLOOMS fountain pen - because when it comes to colour, Miss Pickering is inspirational.
You will find Miss Pickering at her Floral Emporium in the market town of Stamford, a shop bursting with vibrant, sweet-scented blooms and quirky designs.
Mrs Oliver's High Heel Red
Wife, mother, great friend and one of the most organised women I know, Mrs Oliver actually enjoys complex monitoring and evaluation matrices.
But there is another side to Mrs Oliver. It's not just Cinderella who appreciates the power of a new pair of shoes!
Libby Page Pink
Libby Page is author of the book Love Pink. She is also a protester in a pink dress – having campaigned against unpaid internships.
But protesters like to bake too! A Libby Page Pink PLOOM is perfect for writing recipies (and signing manifestos).
An Orange for Mrs Wood
Jane (or 'Mrs Wood' to her class) is the primary school teacher that I am sure we would all have loved to have had. I cannot imagine a warmer, kinder person as your first teacher.
Now Mrs Wood can take the register with her own orange PLOOMS fountain pen.
Paridisus Alexae Green
Zoologist, film-maker and tree climber, Alex Page is the inspiration for Paridisus Alexae Green PLOOM.
Happiest when swimming with turtles or camping on a beach with monkeys. Her PLOOM is perfect for her sketching and journals.

The Quail's Egg Collection
Sally met artist, Caroline Chappell, when they were both exhibiting at The Country Living fair. Sally fell in love with Caroline's wonderful recipe paintings and Sally's husband treated her to a print of the Quail's Egg recipe. This then inspired three new PLOOMS' colours, launched in Autumn 2015; Teal, Duck Egg Blue and Charcoal.
